The music of composer Jeffrey Holmes has been called “Captivating…haunting and slightly disorienting” (Los Angeles Times), and “musically arresting, to be really heard and deserving of reflection” (Society of Composers, INC). His works have been performed at festivals such as the Darmstadt Ferienkurs für Neue Musik (Germany), Cap Ferret Music Festival (France), June in Buffalo (New York), the Etchings Festival (Maulin a Nef, Auvillar, France), “Beyond: Microtonal Music Festival” (Pittsburgh), “Outside the Box” (Southern Illinois University Carbondale), and at MicroFest, the HEAR NOW Festival of New Music, and the Laguna Beach Music Festival (Los Angeles), and has been featured in venues including Carnegie Hall (New York), the Historic Dvorak Museum (Prague), and the Chapelle historique de Bon-Pasteur (Montreal). He has received commissions, awards, and performances from the American Composers Forum, ASCAP, the Jebediah Foundation for New Music Commissions (JFNMC), the Talea Ensemble, the JACK Quartet, bass-baritone Nicholas Isherwood, the Firebird Ensemble, the Penderecki String Quartet, Ensemble Sound Initiative (Paris), “Duo Resonances” - France, ECCE (East Coast Contemporary Ensemble), Duo Amantis, the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, and others.
