Composer / Arranger Details:

 James Romig composes music that endeavors to reflect the intricate complexity of nature, where fundamental structures exert influence on both small-scale iteration and large-scale design, obscuring the boundaries between form and content. His work shows the influence of academic study with Charles Wuorinen and Milton Babbitt, interaction with the natural world through hiking and photography, and an interest in chaos theory, fractal geometry, and small-world networks. Recent guest-composer visits include Northwestern University, the Aspen Institute, the Cincinnati Conservatory, the University of Illinois, Juilliard, and the American Academy in Rome. Residencies include Petrified Forest NP, Grand Canyon NP, and Copland House. He holds degrees from Rutgers University (PhD) and the University of Iowa (MM, BM), and has been on faculty at Western Illinois University since 2002.
