Ryan Fogleman is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer based in Oregon. Blurring the lines between genres and fusing organic and earthly instruments with the otherworldly, limitless possibilities of electronic audio, their music has been described as "an absolutely intimate experience...sincere and melancholic" and covered by publications such as Original Sound Version and Gamasutra.
Equally at home creating trap beats and string quartets, Ryan's chamber and choral compositions draw from a wealth of diverse influences, aiming to forge new paths for contemporary musicians in the classical world. In collaboration with Seattle-based publisher Materia Collective, as well as other independent creators and studios, Ryan has released several original video game soundtracks and contributed to projects such as the compilation album "EXILE: A Tribute to Supergiant Games".
Ryan has spoken on music cognition, the physics of sound, and frequency analysis at events such as the Southern Oregon Arts and Resarch Conference and the Ronald E. McNair Scholars Research Symposium. In addition to commissioned music and sound design, Ryan works with private students to aid them in developing musicality, an intuititive understanding of music theory, and a passion for sharing music and knowledge with others. Ryan is currently exploring new ways to synthesize generative art and sound, most recently in now.then.never (2019) and Lovely, Sweet Dreams (2018), two audiovisual projects created for and premiered at the Oregon Fringe Festival.
