New Berlin, WI, United States


Aug 2007 - Aug 2007

Born in 1985 in New York, NY/USA)

Feyertag taught himself the guitar and began studying jazz guitar with Paul Silbergleit at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwaukee, WI/USA. He is currently finishing his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition at Lawrence University, Appleton, WI/USA.
His primary teachers have been Marcos Balter, Joanne Metcalf, John Benson, Matt Turner, and Fred Sturm.

His music explores the acoustic limitations of western instruments, psycho-physiological phenomena, and the exaggeration of faults within compositional processes with the purpose of forming a dialectic compositional language that incorporates discursive and linearly narrative elements.

Upcoming performances of his works will take place at Lawrence University and the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ/USA; a release of »Suburban décollage« is forthcoming on the LuvSound net label.

Selected pieces: »silence (hiss) horizon« for piano (2007) on a poem by Melanie Farley; »A Box« for soprano and piano (2006), text by Getrude Stein; »Event: Split/Extend« for string quartet (2005).
