Nick Hallett is a composer, vocalist, and cultural producer working between the worlds of music, visual art, and performance. He is currently writing a trilogy of musical scores for and performing with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company. Whispering Pines 10, an opera created in collaboration with artist Shana Moulton, was staged at The Kitchen, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, SFMOMA, Carolina Performing Arts, PICA TBA Festival, Cricoteka, and The Warhol Museum, among others. The duo were awarded a Creative Capital grant to adapt their project for the internet. Since 2007, Hallett has been Music Director of the Joshua Light Show, and—since 2004—the co-director of NYC's celebrated Darmstadt series. Recent projects of Hallett’s have seen presentations at Danspace Project, Experiments in Opera, Palais de Tokyo, YBCA, Mass MoCA, Ecstatic Music Festival, National Sawdust, Centro de Experimentación Teatro Colón, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Public Theater/Joe’s Pub.
