Bio

Bryce Dessner, known to many as a guitarist with Grammy-nominated band The National, is one of the most sought-after composers of his generation, with a rapidly expanding catalog of works commissioned by leading ensembles.

Propulsive rhythms often alternate with passages in which time is deftly suspended. It is these features that have caused his orchestral, chamber, and vocal compositions to be commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Metropolitan Museum of Art (for the New York Philharmonic), Kronos Quartet, New York City Ballet and many others.

His pieces have been featured in TV shows such as Conan and Grey’s Anatomy as well as films including John Wells’ The Company Men (2010), Dessner is also a go-to address for Film and TV scores. Dessner, along with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto, to compose the score for the award-winning Alejandro González Iñárritu film, The Revenant. On top of that, Dessner has contributed to the soundtracks of Warrior (2011) and St. Vincent (2014) with The National. Dessner recently scored the feature documentary The Death And Life Of Marsha P. Johnson, directed by David France.
