Ashley Rose Fure
Assistant Professor of Music
Ashley Fure is a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic concert music as well as intermedia art. Her work explores the kinetic source of sound, bringing focus to the muscular act of music making and the vital behaviors of raw acoustic matter. She joined the Dartmouth College Department of Music as Assistant Professor in 2015 and holds degrees in composition from Harvard University (PhD), IRCAM (Cursus 1 and 2), Oberlin Conservatory (B. Mus), and the Interlochen Arts Academy.
Fure’s work has been commissioned and premiered by IRCAM, ICE, Klangforum Wien, Talea, Arditti, Diotima, Dal Niente, and the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, amongst others, and featured in festivals such as Manifeste (Paris), BOZAR (Brussels), Impuls (Graz), Sweet Thunder (San Francisco), the International Digital Arts Biennale/Elektra (Montreal), Darmstadt (Germany) Agora (Paris), Stereolux (Nantes), Nemo (Paris), l’Ososphère (Strasbourg), the ISCM World Music Days (Lithuania), the Göteborg Siren Festival (Sweden), and the Third Practice Electroacoustic Music Festival (Richmond).
