Music Theory & Composition
Jeremy Podgursky recently finished the Grawemeyer Fellowship in music composition (M.M.) at the University of Louisville where he studied with Steve Rouse (acoustic) and John Gibson (electronics). His music has been featured in venues and festivals in the United States, the Netherlands and Japan. Along the way, he studied privately and in masterclasses with the likes of John Adams, Tan Dun, Simon Bainbridge, Ivan Tcherepnin, Karel Husa, Pierre Boulez, George Tsontakis, Sebastian Currier, and Steven Stucky. Jeremy’s music has been performed by professional groups such as Trio Arsenal and the North/South Consonance Chamber Orchestra, which recently chose his piece “O Dance! O Light! Onami!” for inclusion on their upcoming CD. Jeremy is the regional winner of the 2007 SCI/ASCAP award, and has advanced to the final round of the national competition.
During his bachelors program in music school, Jeremy started the critically acclaimed psychedelic rock band THE PENNIES (www.thepennies.com) with fellow music students at the university. THE PENNIES toured the US and part of Europe, recorded multiple releases on CD and vinyl, the most recent of which was released in 2006 on Ear X-Tacy Records. “Ivy”, a song Jeremy wrote for THE PENNIES, earned him a spot as finalist in the 2005 International Songwriter’s Competition.
In early 2005, Jeremy released a 60-minute CD of ambient chamber music for meditation and relaxation. The CD is entitled SUBTLE BODIES and is available on www.cdbaby.com, www.earx-tacy.com, www.amazon.com, and through the website at www.subtlebodies.com. The CD is further proof of Jeremy's belief that beautiful, thoughtful music can live and breathe outside of the concert hall.
