Andrew Byrne is an Australian composer based in New York. His music has been described as “beautifully constructed,
tautly focused music“ (Fanfare Magazine), “a delirious swoon: somehow lush and minimal, soothing and ominous”
(Studio 360, WNYC Radio) and “Imagine Ligeti’s Etudes having had a little too much to drink with Conlon Nancarrow
as the designated driver” (Gramophone Magazine).
