Biography

Anthony Vine is a composer and guitarist currently living in San Diego, California. Vine's work is characterized by immersive forms and pluralistic approaches to tuning. Compositions and installations foreground the peripheral or dormant sonic capacities of instruments and analogue machines. These projects attempt to engender a reflexive engagement with listening, wherein one takes notice of the complexities of listening and begins to perceive themselves perceiving.

His music has been presented at Carnegie Hall, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Musiikin Aika, Schloss Solitude, Transit Festival, and Ultima Festival through collaborations with Alarm Will Sound, Quatuor Alcea, AndPlay, Bearthoven, Quatuor Bozzini, Gareth Davis, Duo Axis, Hotel Elefant, Mari Kawamura, David Lackner, Dudok Kwartet, Will Lang, Karl Larson, Loadbang, Minnesota Orchestra, Ensemble Modelo62, The Rhythm Method, Trio SurPlus, and Yarn/Wire. Vine develops collaborative work and explores brend-based awareness in Hermetic Art Party with Madison Greenstone (clarinets and electronics) and Katy Gilmore (projections).

In 2016, he was awarded the Gaudeamus Prize. The jury noted, "Anthony Vine creates a solid, mature, beautifully crafted fragile sound world. He knows how to blur the identity of the different sources of sounds including the use of electronics in a very singular way." Other awards and honors include the 2018 John J. Cali String Quartet Composition Award, 2015 Jerome Fund Commissioning Award, 2015 Salvatore Martirano Memorial Composition Award (2nd place), and NPR/Q2 Radio Top Composers under 40 (2011).

Vine is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in music composition at the University of California, San Diego.
