Kenneth David Stewart

Kenneth David Stewart (BMI) is a bit of a Renaissance man. As a solo performer, he creates work by weaving together live instruments, voice, physical interfaces and sound processing into songs with beautiful textures and a wide range of styles. As a composer, his whose compositions range from symphonic music to multimedia work and everything in between, including vocal music, solo instrumental pieces and music for film.

Kenneth is currently developing a stage-deployed performance interface for music and dance in collaboration with Natalia Duong, a choreographer and scholar, and Jonathan Cain, a cellist and baroque instrumentalist. His electro-acoustic work, 'Thetastate' was given a studio recording by the jazz trio The Bad Plus and was released online by Duke University in conjunction with Duke Performances. Kenneth is presently pursuing a Ph.D. in Music Composition at Duke University and holds degrees from Duke, Rice University, the University of Arizona and Pima Community College.
