Nicholas Deyoe

Nicholas Deyoe is a composer, conductor, and guitarist born in Colorado and currently living in Southern California. He is a Ph.D. candidate in composition at UC San Diego and studies with Roger Reynolds. Compositionally, Nicholas strives to bring together noise, delicacy, drama, fantasy, brutality, and flexibility of intonation. Some of his pieces focus on all of these aspects, and others on only a few. He is inspired by his friends and by the personal relationships that are made possible through music. As a guitarist, Nicholas likes to improvise with unconventional stringing, bows, and beer cans. Nicholas is currently the assistant conductor of the La Jolla Symphony under Steve Schick. He enjoys conducting orchestral repertoire, but is happiest when preparing to premiere the work of his friends with smaller ensembles. Nicholas has conducted The La Jolla Symphony Orchestra, Red Fish Blue Fish, Ensemble Ascolta, The Darmstadt Preisträgerensemble, Noise, The University of Northern Colorado Symphony, Chamber, and Sinfonietta Orchestras, and several ad hoc ensembles in Colorado, California, and Germany. His music has been performed in the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain, Iceland, and Japan.
