I am a composer.
My name is Tetsuya Hori. I like to write music for instruments, vocals, electronics and objects as the instrumentation of solo, ensemble, chamber and orchestral music. But for which instrumentation I want to compose is always fluid.
I compose for various performing musicians, chamber and symphony orchestra. In addition to that, I teach composition at various schools and universities in Europe, Asia and North America.
I have been the recipient of special prize from Showa University of Music, special mention from International Music Prize for Excellence in Composition 2011, the Best CD Album of 2011 by foxy digitalis and Semi-Finalist of the 2012 Queen Elisabeth Composition Competition in Belgium.
