Nikko Musuraca

Biography

I am a Pittsburgh native, Baltimore-based student at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University pursuing a Bachelor of Music in Computer Music Composition with a minor in Business of Music. I hold position as Ensemble Librarian Intern and Front of House Head Usher at the Peabody Institute, and currently work as Assistant Librarian at the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, NC.

I studied classical voice with Stephen Totter at Carnegie Mellon University’s Precollege program and the Pittsburgh CLO Academy. In high school, I participated in several district and regional honors choral festivals for choral performance through the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA). In the summer of 2018, I studied at New York University’s What Makes a Star? Music Business Intensive, where other students and I produced and programed an hour-long performance held at The Bitter End in New York City.

I compose a variety of computer and electronic music under the tutelage of McGregor Boyle Jr. and Sam Pluta. I experiment with an amalgam of digital audio processing techniques and sound synthesis, often exemplifying my interest in storytelling and theater through the use of recorded sounds and spoken word in my music. I have a keen interest in merging the dynamic of self-produced artists with their own creative and monetary success directly. My experience as a minority in the classical music field has driven me to pursue and establish an uplifting community for women/non-binary people of color and other minorities in the field of music technology through my passion for research, representation, and accessibility within the music industry.
