A contemporary classical composer and conductor, Nico Muhly was born in Vermont in 1981. After graduating from Columbia University, Muhly went on to earn a Masters Degree in Music from Juilliard. He worked on a number of well received projects, including a cantata on the Elements of Style by Stunk & White. Muhly also included film scoring on his rÃ©sumÃ©, composing the music to Choking Man in 2006 and Joshua in 2007. His abilities to move from genre to genre soon paid off, and Muhly began working with some of the music world's most well known names, including BjÃ¶rk, Antony (of Antony & the Johnsons), and Bonnie "Prince" Billy (not to mention working with modern classical composer Philip Glass). In 2006, his debut recording Speaks Volumes was released. It was followed in 2008 by a collection of his collaborations with other artists titled Ekvilibrium. The next goal on Muhly's drawing board was a follow-up to his debut, the collection Mothertongue. ~ Chris TruePortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
