Artist Biographies:

Contrasts of noise exploration and melodic interventions from Mr. Stonecipher, aka Ryan Lewis, employing a variety of approaches to soundwork both attractive and brutal.

"Shadows burn the rain with faces in your lap. Soft shiny numbers of what we have to become. Giant medicine minds give out bags of snakes. There comes a drum on the left window. ...tell them it was Mr. Stonecipher."

Mr. Stonecipher is the solo harsh dream sound project of Ryan Lewis. The project dives deep within Ryan's childhood traumas and serves as an outlet and meditative release for the artist using sound. Stonecipher was his birth name thus being adopted by his grandparents becoming Lewis.

"Joshua Marquez (b. 1990) is a Filipino-American composer, guitarist, and activist whose award-winning music explores the liminal space between tone and noise as a means to investigate the complexities and duality of Asian American identity. Searing a sonic imprint of cultural identity, his investigations of the noise spectrum represent the struggles of alienation and assimilation through the fusion and fission of disparate timbres. Hailed as "cutting-edge" (The Gazette), "haunting" (The Daily Iowan), and "creepy" (Fanfare Magazine), Marquez's polemic deconstruction of sound is consumed by ever-evolving rituals of disintegrated perspectives from a postcolonial lens.

Marquez's music has been performed and recorded, internationally, by ensembles and musicians such as the Arditti Quartet, JACK Quartet, Brno Philharmonic, Carmine Marcello Rizzi (violin), Iwona Glinka (flute), Akropolis Reed Quintet, Stony Brook Contemporary Chamber Players, University of Iowa Center for New Music, Gate City Camerata, Quintet Sirocco, and the National Chamber Orchestra of Armenia.

His work has been awarded a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Residency as an Arts Fellow, a Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency as a CSG Fellow, a Millay Colony for the Arts Residency, a Brush Creek Artist Residency, a Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts Residency, the Arts in Wilmington Artist of 2019 Award, a 2016 Sayat Nova International Composition Competition Prize, a North Carolina Arts Grant, an Iowa Social Justice Grant, and an Iowa Arts Across Borders Grant in addition to other honors.

Recent performances include the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYC), the National Student Electronic Music Event (GA), Birmingham New Music Festival (AL), Brave New Works (CA), Fulcrum Point New Music (IL), SCI Concerts, Stony Brook Premieres! (NYC), Circuit Bridges (NYC), John Donald Robb Composers' Symposium (NM), An Art Artistry (GR), Electroacoustic Music Festival Ecos Urbanos (MX), and the International Ferienkruse für Neue Musik Darmstadt (DE) in venues such as Symphony Space (NYC), Abron Arts Center (NYC), the Englert Theatre (IA), Open House Chicago (IL), Detroit Opera House (MI), Weatherspoon Art Museum (NC), Elsewhere Museum (NC) the Canada International Film Festival, the Lightworks Film Festival (MI), and the Utopia Film Festival (MD), among others.

Marquez's research was featured at the 2015 Humpback Whale World Congress in Sainte-Marie, Madagascar. Recordings of Marquez's music have been released on ABLAZE Records (USA), RMN Classical Records (UK), Sarton Records (PL), and E.M.P.i.R.E.S Records (USA).

Marquez holds a PhD in composition from the University of Iowa in addition to an MM from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Joshua is currently the Artistic Director for Chamber Music Wilmington and the Artistic Director for the social justice and interdisciplinary arts nonprofit, GRIT Collaborative. Marquez teaches at Cape Fear Community College and serves as a Resident Composer for the Saint Mary's College Summer Composition Intensive in Notre Dame, IN (2013-2019), having previously taught at the University of Iowa and the Preucil School of Music.

He has studied with David Gompper, Josh Levine, Mark Engebretson, and Alejandro Rutty in addition to private studies with Samuel Adler, Derek Bermel, Michael Harrison, Laura Kaminsky, David Lang, and Augusta Read Thomas."
