Drawing from his background in a wide field of genres including rock, classical, film, theater, improvised, and electronic music – composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist Hahn Rowe has developed a uniquely personal sonic language which fuses disparate musical elements into atmospheric, sensual, and polymorphic soundscapes.
Equally at home performing on violin, guitar, turntables, and digital/electronic studio instruments, Hahn Rowe has retained his unique sensibilities while crossing musical borders. He has worked with Hugo Largo, David Byrne, Antony and the Johnsons, Hassan Hakmoun, Glenn Branca, Moby, Swans, Foetus, and R.E.M., among many others.
He is a 3 time Bessie Award recipient and his long-standing collaboration with Brussels/Berlin based choreographer Meg Stuart (DAMAGED GOODS) has resulted in the creation of 8 evening length dance/theater works. He has also created scores for choreographers Benoit Lachambre, Louise Lecavalier, and John Jasperse among others.
Hahn Rowe is active as a composer for film and television, creating scores for films such as CLEAN SHAVEN by Lodge Kerrigan, SPRING FORWARD by Tom Gilroy, and MARRIED IN AMERICA by Michael Apted.
