Steven Bryant

Steven Bryant’s music is chiseled in its structure and intent, fusing lyricism, dissonance, silence, technology, and humor into lean, skillfully-crafted works that enthrall listeners and performers alike. His seminal work Ecstatic Waters, for wind ensemble and electronics, has become one of the most performed works of its kind in the world, receiving over 250 performances in its first five seasons. The orchestral version was premiered by the Minnesota Orchestra to unanimousrapturous acclaim. The son of a professional trumpeter and music educator, he strongly values music education, and his creative output includes a number of works for young and developing musicians.

Music

My music ranges from electronic experiments to works for professional symphony orchestra, from music for middle school band to virtuosic solo pieces, and combinations of all of these with live electronic media. I believe firmly in writing music not only for accomplished musicians, but also for those at the beginning of their musical lives.

September 6, 2023 MusicPublishing

Delighted to learn that the Texas PML (Prescribed Music List) has added both Ecstatic Fanfare and In This Broad Earth. Any band in Texas (or any other state that also use Texas’ list) that wants to perform these works at their contest is welcome to acquire the works here at my website, and I’m more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Free recordings and downloadable PDF scores for both works are available on their respective pages, if you wish to check them out before committing.

Thank you to the PML committee for selecting these works for inclusion. It’s the first time in 15 years that any of my music has been added!
