Bryce Dessner is continually expanding his music horizons. Be it as guitarist for the Country wide, curator from the MusicNOW event, maker, or composer-in-residence, he’s usually involved with creating songs, sketching on a variety of components and influences, be it music of additional cultures or designs. A lot of his innovative energy is usually sparked by collaborations with additional music artists. Dessner and his twin sibling Aaron possess both performed music since child years. Bryce gained both his Bachelor’s and Master’s level in music at Yale. The brothers became a member of with Bryan and Scott Devendorf and Matt Berninger to create the indie rock-band the Country wide in NY in 1999. In 2001, simply as the Country wide released its 1st album around the Brassland Information label — co-founded from the Dessner brothers and Alec Hanley Bemis — Bryce became a member of a few of his Yale classmates, including Padma Newsome, to create Clogs, an ensemble collaboratively creating mainly acoustic, instrumental music. Dessner founded the Cincinnati-based MusicNOW event in 2006, which shows contemporary music. Over time it has presented a global roster of guests which range from Glenn Kotche, Bell Orchestre, Kyaw Kyaw Naing, Therefore Percussion, and Sufjan Stevens towards the Kronos Quartet, the Cincinnati Symphony, as well as the Lone Bellow. He’s also aimed celebrations in Brooklyn, London, and Cork, Ireland, some merging additional arts with music. In the past due 2000s/early 2010s, Dessner started getting commissions from agencies like the American Composers Community forum as well as the Brooklyn Academy of Music. A payment from Kronos Quartet, Aheym (2009), was the first ever to provide him wider interest and was the centerpiece on the Kronos 2013 disk specialized in his music. St. Carolyn by the ocean (2011), a dual concerto for electrical guitars, commissioned partly by Muziekgebouw Eindhoven alongside two various other Dessner functions, was matched with film music by Jonny Greenwood because of its premiere documenting performed with the Copenhagen Philharmonic and Andre de Ridder, released in 2014 on Deutsche Grammophon. Various other notable Dessner masterpieces are Music for Timber and Strings, for Therefore Percussion, performed on musical instruments created by Dessner and Aron Sanchez; and Murder Ballades, highlighted on 8th Blackbird’s Grammy-nominated record Filament. Another Grammy-nominated record with Dessner’s name onto it was the National’s 2013 Difficulty WILL SEE Me, which he proved helpful as manufacturer and orchestrator in addition to performer. In 2013, Dessner became composer-in-residence at Muziekgebouw Eindhoven to get a three-year period.

Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
To me a song like 'Demons' or 'Trouble Will Find Me' are acknowledgments that you can't really plan for life and you can't plan for trouble. As much as you try to organize your life, your life will surprise you. And sometimes trouble's not a bad thing. In terms of the music it almost feels like it's a good thing - you never know when a song is going to surprise you. We look for these subversive moments in songs.
