Jeremy Flower is a multi-instrumentalist and composer of acoustic and electronic music. His work with electronics has landed him on stage as a guest artist with the Atlanta and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, the Santa Fe Opera, LA Philharmonic, Konzertgebau, Curtis Institute, St. Luke’s, American Composers Orchestra as well as with world-renowned electronic producers in experimental, ambient and minimal techno genres.
Flower has been commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for their Music NOW series, James Sommerville and the Hamilton Philharmonic for their new music festival What Next?, and Carnegie Hall’s Weill Institute. He has written music for the feature documentary Animas Perdidas. He is part of David Krakauer’s Ancestral Groove project, which explores the heritage of traditional Jewish music through the lens of the modern experience fusing Klezmer with hip-hop, jazz, and house music.
He has collaborated extensively with Argentine-American composer Osvaldo Golijov, helping to create electronic parts for the Grammy-nominated song cycle Ayre (2006) and one-act opera Ainadamar which won two Grammys (2007). Both of these works have been recorded for and released by Deutsche Grammophon. Flower and Golijov also collaborated on the film score for Francis Ford Coppola’s 2007 film, Youth Without Youth, a composition for the opening of WNYC Radio’s new performance space, and the score for Coppola’s 2009 film Tetro, and the yet unreleased film Twixt.
Currently Flower is working on a couple children, a recorded song cycle for large chamber ensemble, some Synth-pop, improvised techno music, and building modular synthesizers.
