Stephan Prock is a film music scholar and freelance composer of contemporary music for soloists, chamber ensembles, orchestra, and film. Based in Boston, USA, Stephan's music is widely performed in the U.S. and abroad.
"My New Zealand sojourn began in 2006 when I moved from the United States to Wellington to take up the post of Senior Lecturer in Composition at the newly formed New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University of Wellington (NZSM). With that, I embarked on an artistic and technical voyage of exploration that transformed my compositional outlook and procedure.
First and foremost, my immersion in the adventurous and idiosyncratic musical culture of Aotearoa activated a radical evolution in my musical style and perspective, which was inspired by the vibrant musical environment of the NZSM. The School’s world-class performers, in particular, were not only talented, but generously opened up a variety of collaborative opportunities for me. These collaborations formed the basis of my New Zealand sojourn, and greatly informed my subsequent musical development."
