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" in a way that "stimulates both the heart and mind in tandem".
Equally at home composing hip-hop beats and string quartets, Ryan's chamber and choral music draws from a wealth of influences to open new doors for the classical world. In collaboration with Seattle-based publisher Materia Collective, as well as other independent creators, Ryan has released several original video game soundtracks and contributed to creative projects such as the group 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 work and research into the cutting edge of audio, 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 create 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.
