Steven M. Miller was a composer, sound artist, and musician who taught in the Contemporary Music Program at the College of Santa Fe from 1996 to 2007, chairing that program until 2003. He then served as Associate Professor of Sonic Arts at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music at the National University of Singapore until moving back to Santa Fe during the summer of 2014, after being diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Miller was instrumental in shaping the Contemporary Music Program, now one of the largest departments at Santa Fe University of Art and Design. His vision and his commitment to balancing traditional music studies with extensive work in music technology and world music remain the core values of the CMP.
Miller curated and produced the Santa Fe International Festival of Electroacoustic Music for 12 years, bringing the world’s most important practitioners of this art form to serve residencies at the college and to interact with students and the Santa Fe community. He organized and co-hosted the weekly radio broadcast of contemporary music and sound art Other Voices, Other Sounds on KUNM radio in Albuquerque, and curated the Atrium Sound Space ambient sound gallery in Benildus Hall. He founded and directed the college’s first gamelan ensemble, and actively studied and performed the music of Java, Bali, the Balkans, the Middle East and North Africa. His writings can be found in international journals, websites, and magazines on computer music, acoustic ecology, and world music.
This scholarship is made possible through the generous donations of Steven Miller’s friends around the world: composers, performers, authors, acoustic ecologists, music technologists, arts activists, ethnomusicologists, educators, relatives and family friends, who continue to value the contributions made by Steven Miller to the world of music and to the hundreds of students influenced by his work and by his teaching.
