Rob Voisey composes music as a natural part of his life. Substantial compositions can take months to complete, or they can appear in one or two days, full blown in both concept and in detail. Voisey has developed an original and versatile system of interlocking, modulating modes that blend elements of eastern and western musical processes. The resulting compositions reflect a wonderful merging of spontaneous energy and disciplined technique. Voisey’s music offers a multitude of pleasures to performers and audiences alike. This is music worth hearing again and again. - Noah Creshevsky Voisey values himself as a renaissance man. His disciplines include music, computer science, math, art, and poetry. In the midst of accomplishing his Bachelor of Arts at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, he traveled to Israel to study with the composers Oded Zehavi and Aiten Schteinberg. Voisey returned to New York two years later to resume his studies with Noah Creshevsky and George Brunner at the City University of New York at Brooklyn College. After a long hiatus, he returned to his background of computer science creating music with electronic media rather than limiting himself to conventional instruments. In Israel, Voisey debuted several compositions at Tel Hai, Bar-Ilan, and Jerusalem. He also enjoyed performances broadcasted on Kol Muscia (the voice of music) Israeli National Radio. Currently composing in Harlem, New York he has several compositions debut in venues in New York City as well as abroad. Recently his compositions have debuted in Buenos Aires, Argentina with La Scala de San Telmo. Relentlessly developing the Vox Novus in its goal to promote contemporary composers, he is also involved in several other projects promoting contemporary music. One of these endeavors is the Dante Project involving several artists combining their talents to express their interpretation of Dante's Divine Comedy. Besides several chamber and electronic works, he is working on Poppetjie, an opera describing the path of girl, fighting society and family oppression as she reaches womanhood.
