Steve Ashby is a musician, composer, and sound artist.

Ashby builds textures around sound found in the natural and digital world to discover places of intersection which engage in the art of listening.

Ashby’s work is a combination of field recordings, manipulated sound, and composed elements. With a growing interest towards sound ecology, Ashby looks for rhythms, melodies, and textures found in his surroundings to inform the direction of his work.

Recent performances and residencies include EMS Stockholm Guest Composer Series, Radiophrenia Scotland, Cube Fest, New Music Gathering, Sound Arts Richmond, and the NYC Electroacoustic Music Festival.
