Ash Stemke (b. 1991) “‚Ķsimply composes music he wants to hear, because it is beautiful, spouts no unpleasant theories, and manages nonetheless to avoid the too-well-known and trite.” (Steven Kruger, New York Arts). His music explores symmetry, trajectory, and organicism, has been performed across the United States, and will be sent to the moon within the next few years.

Ash currently studies composition with Clifton Callender at Florida State University and holds degrees from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (MM-Composition and PBC-Music Theory) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (BM with Highest Honors).
