Andrew Stock is a composer/artist/performer/curator working in concert and installative formats. Primary thematics of recent work include abstraction and power, explored in an approach situating sound within—rather than only as the objective of—a field of other parameters (e.g. symbol, tactility, formal disposition...)

Andrew is currently a doctoral fellow at the University of Chicago. Previous engagements include composition projects presented, awarded, or underwritten by diverse groups and soloists (LA Phil with wild Up, ASCAP, New York Virtuoso Singers, Cleveland Chamber Symphony, chamber players of the Cleveland Orchestra and St. Louis Symphony) in addition to touring the U.S., Germany, and Switzerland as a soloist, chamber player, and orchestral musician (NY Phil Biennial, New World Symphony, festivals of Aspen and Lucerne, WQXR Q2 etc.). Since 2017 he has increasingly presented other kinds of work alongside making concert music (text-based, conceptual, performance art...) and developed a teaching practice (e.g. from 2017–19 teaching composition, chamber music, and precollege theory at Webster University in St. Louis).
