If you see something, say something

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 00:38:21 +0000

Beloveds.  It’s been a minute since I’ve blogged about it, but now I’ve got something to blog about, so blog about it I shall. Over the last 18 months, I’ve been actively trying to be more assertive. I have a real difficulty standing up for myself personally and professionally, mainly because I’m so desperate to […]

Fall Back

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 17:05:28 +0000

Many exciting releases and projects are all coming together at the same time this fall! In no particular order: a million years ago, Teitur and I made a piece together called Confessions, based on boring YouTube videos and the people who make them. We recorded it, and mixed it, and then eight thousand other things […]

A while

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 16:08:24 +0000

I know I haven’t updated this in a while, and I feel crazed about it. I’m going to write more soon, but in the meantime, get excited! Nadia Sirota’s album is coming out soon, with my viola concerto and a newly (by Chris Thompson) orchestrated version of Keep in Touch on it, plus an album […]

John Scott

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:17:57 +0000

John Scott died yesterday. I wrote this: So, I’ve spent the better part of the afternoon driving around Santa Cruz listening to every recording of John Scott in his various guises as conductor and organist I could find on my phone and other devices. It turns out there are LOADS there: hours, days, even? His recording of […]

I realize that I should use this space to say more what’s going on with my work, so here is a little update.  In September, I’ll be in Paris working on a ballet with my old friend & collaborator Benjamin Millepied.  There is a bunch of upcoming work at the Wigmore Hall with dear Iestyn. In […]

Thoughts on being well

Wed, 27 May 2015 16:22:20 +0000

I have been, it turns out, unwell for a long time. I didn’t really start realising how unwell I’d been until I suddenly — over the course of three months, got a little bit better. The long and short of it is that I’d had an ugly mental health episode about ten years ago, and […]

Nico Muhly Talks Madonna’s Rebel Heart

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 15:45:36 +0000

A lifelong Madonna fan contemplates her new album, the role she had in his life and the role she’s had in everything. Read the full article at the talkhouse.

Think fast

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 21:14:48 +0000

Boop!  A strange thing happened today, which is that an article for which I gave an interview in January in Pittsburgh has just now materialized, and I’ve gotten in some mild internet trouble for some of the things I said, which I just wanted to clarify, mainly because it’s interesting how these things have the […]

Nico Muhly Talks Coldplay’s Ghost Stories

Thu, 22 May 2014 17:32:22 +0000

This is a repost from The Talkhouse, originally published May 20, 2014. I have always liked Coldplay. There is something inherently honest-seeming about their faces, and I liked how once they got paid, they could afford to steal (in the most loving way) from other bands who also got paid — there is something much […]

Sit on the floor

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 14:32:15 +0000

I’ve been ignoring this space, and I don’t feel great about it. This past few months has been wildly busy, exciting, fun, everything, and I had initially thought I would feel the spirit to blog about the entire process of mounting Two Boys at the Met, but in late August, after our first week of […]

I had a series of disjointed thoughts about that Beyoncé album: Let me tell you a story about my phone. Four times in the last few years, it has made a certain series of Noises. My current theory is that the Noises are generated when a critical mass of gays text one another at the […]

Nico Muhly: the power of Tavener’s soul music

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 18:30:09 +0000

The following appeared in The Guardian 13 November, 2013: As a chorister, I always looked forward to singing Tavener’s Hymn to the Mother of God. It’s a simply constructed piece: the choir is split up into two parts. The left side sings identical music to the right, but slightly delayed. The brilliance of the construction […]

Nico Muhly Talks Two Boys, And The Chaos Of Chinatown

Sat, 09 Nov 2013 21:16:28 +0000

The following is an interview by Marc Yearsley on Gothamist November 9, 2013: Nico Muhly is a graduate of Columbia and Juillard, and he has worked with Phillip Glass, Björk, and Grizzly Bear, to name a few. His opera Two Boys tells the story of an online relationship between two young boys and the circumstances […]

Cray Cray

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 21:52:13 +0000

Just in case you forgot, I have an opera opening on Monday. Do you know what’s been absolutely crazy is the last three weeks. I knew it was going to be crazy — I’ve learnt to read ahead in the calendar and see potential moments of high tension and stress. I did a funny thing […]
