James Romig composes music in response to an increasingly fragmented and accelerated world, creating highly self-referential works that evolve isomorphically and reveal themselves gradually. Endeavoring to reflect the intricacies of the natural world, his compositional paradigms exert influence on both small-scale iteration and large-scale design, obscuring boundaries between form and content.
Ashlee Mack has given recitals in Germany, Italy, and across the United States. Specializing in contemporary music, she has premiered works by many notable composers including, Christian Carey, Matthew Heap, David Maki, Robert Morris, Lawrence Moss, Paul Paccione, Bruce Quaglia, James Romig, Edward Taylor, and David Vayo. Mack is Director of Piano Studies at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois.
