Nathaniel Haering is deeply interested in the use of live electronics to expand the artistic capabilities of traditional instruments and augment their timbral horizons while enriching their collaborative and improvisational possibilities. This perspective and fascination with timbral, gestural, and spectral development transfers directly to his purely acoustic work, often exploring juxtapositions of pitch and noise, virtuosity and striking vulnerability, and frequently delving into the beauty of many of the grittiest sounds found in-between the extremes of these continuums. He has collaborated with and had works performed by Grammy Award-winning Vietnamese performer Vân Ánh Võ, Ensemble Mise-En, Mivos Quartet, members of WasteLAnd, and Ensemble Dal Niente. His pieces have recently been featured at the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium in Toronto Canada, the SCI Student National Conference at Ball State University, SEAMUS 2016 Conference in Statesboro Georgia, Electronic Music Midwest in Kansas City, Root Signals electronic music festival in Jacksonville Florida, SPLICE Institute in Kalamazoo Michigan, N_SEME at Louisiana State University, and NYCEMF in New York City. This summer he will be working with Master Artist John Gibson at the Atlantic Center for the Arts Residency in Smyrna Beach Florida and be attending the Valencia International Performance Academy in Valencia Spain.
