"Noah Kaplan is a composer and saxophonist from Topanga, CA. His music blends the dark energy of free jazz with Romantic lyricism in new realms of tonality. Kaplan has composed for the JACK quartet, PRISM quartet, So Percussion, and the American Modern Ensemble, among others. He performs in and composes for Dollshot, the art-rock band he co-leads, who recently recorded their second album, his song cycle, Lalande. He is currently collaborating with writer Hampton Fancher on a sci-fi opera. As an improviser, Kaplan has performed and/or recorded with Joe Morris, Anthony Coleman, David Tronzo, Peter Erskine, Alan Pasqua, Rinde Eckert, Mat Maneri and Joe Maneri, among many others. The Noah Kaplan Quartet's debut album Descendants was released on HatHut Records in 2011. Their second album, Cluster Swerve, will be out on HatHut in early 2017.

Noah is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Music Composition at Princeton University where he is a Naumburg and Mark Nelson doctoral fellow. He graduated from New England Conservatory in 2006 with a B.M. in Jazz Performance, and received an M.F.A. in Music Composition from Princeton in 2015. He was the William and Mary Greve Foundation-John J. Tommaney Memorial Fellow in Composition at the Tanglewood Music Center in 2016.

In addition to composing and improvising, he produces new classical and experimental music for Underwolf Records. He recently edited a new English edition of Ivan Wyschnegradsky's Manual of Quarter-Tone Harmony, which will be released on Underwolf Press in early 2017. He lives in Brooklyn."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"What lurks in the layers riled into service of harsh and uncertain gaiety that cracks the fence is the delivery system of Dollshot beyond the billowing mortality of duty and pain. The Siamese rivalry of piano and bass; the craft of the former a Ulysses of keys, the string of the latter the buoyant sea both locked to the siren's song and the dragon's reed."-Hampton Fancher
