Project Schott New York (PSNY) is delighted to announce the signing of a publishing agreement with composer Elijah Daniel Smith.

Praised by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a “rising star,” composer Elijah Daniel Smith is quickly establishing himself as one of today’s leading young composers. His music, which has been described as “gnashing and relentless” (Chicago Tribune), and as “a compilation of sounds that defy their source” (Picture This Post), ranges from orchestral compositions to multimedia and interdisciplinary collaborations.

Elijah’s affinity for dense and complex textures, rhythmic ambiguity and fluidity, and rich gravitational harmonies shines through in all of his creations. His music has been premiered and performed by world renowned ensembles such as The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the American Composers Orchestra, Mivos Quartet, Bergamot Quartet, Sō Percussion, Sandbox Percussion, Contemporaneous, ~Nois, DITHER, Copland House, Ensemble Linea, Ecce Ensemble, Fuse Quartet, Earspace, and the Peabody Symphony Orchestra. Upcoming commissions and projects include new works for Alarm Will Sound, Yarn/Wire, and the L. Mattson Collective.

Elijah is currently pursuing his PhD in Music Composition at Princeton University.
