Ash Fure is a sonic artist who blends installation and performance. Called “purely visceral” and “staggeringly original” by The New Yorker, her full-bodied sonic experiences work on the senses in startling ways. Recent productions include Hive Rise (2020), commissioned by CTM 2020 and premiered at Berghain in Berlin; Filament: for Trio, Orchestra, and Moving Voices (2018), commissioned and premiered by the New York Philharmonic; and The Force of Things (2014-2022), a climate opera premiered at Peak Performances. Fure is an Associate Professor of Music at Dartmouth College and is co-artistic director of The Industry. A finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Music, Fure has won two Lincoln Center Emerging Artists Awards, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Rome Prize in Music Composition, a DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Prize, a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant for Artists, a Fulbright Fellowship to France, a Stuttgart Composition Prize, a Darmstadt Kranichsteiner Musikpreis, and a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship from Columbia University.
