Composer, violist and vocalist Hannah Selin juxtaposes acoustic instruments with electronic sounds, field recordings and recorded interviews to imagine new and unlikely sound-spaces. Her work ranges from solo instrumental and chamber music with and without electronics, to songs, music for dance, orchestral music, film scores and multichannel sound installations. Hannah has studied composition with Wang Jie, Missy Mazzoli and Tonia Ko, viola with Karen Ritscher, Robert Vernon and C.J. Chang, and voice with Fay Victor. She plays viola with ensembles throughout New York City including Ensemble Mise-En, the AEON Ensemble and the Delphi Chamber Orchestra, and performs as lead singer and violist with her own group, GADADU.
Hannah was awarded a full-tuition graduate assistantship for the Masters of Music in Composition program at Brooklyn College (CUNY), where she served as Composer-In-Residence with the Brooklyn College Orchestra in the spring of 2016. Hannah was a finalist in the 2016 Verdant Vibes Call for Scores, and has received commissions from saxophonist Carlos Gontijo and violists Kallie Ciechomski and Karen Ritscher. In the fall of 2016, Hannah’s ensemble GADADU was awarded residencies at Avaloch Farm Music Institute and the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College.
