Andrew Noseworthy is a Canadian composer whose work focuses on creating a place for the underplayed voices found within unlikely ensemble contexts or understated instruments. His music addresses the struggles of accepting or rejecting 'locality'; while drawing from experiences of isolation within his hometown of Labrador West, the tight-knit arts commmunity of St John's, Newfoundland and the expansive scenes in New York City.

Andrew's music has been featured at venues such as Spectrum NYC, Dixon Place, and The Array Space; and premiered by interpreters such as Bearthoven, Miki Sawada, Elizabeth Fleming, Andrea Lodge, and the Caution Tape Sound Collective. Recent work has been premiered during multiple St John's International Sound Symposiums, and most recently at FUERZAfest 2017 (NYC).

Andrew is also an active performer, and is a founding member NYC-based multimedia collaborative, “Transfer is Available”, experimental hardcore duo “This Place is Actually the Worst”, and DIY label “people | places | records”. He is a frequent collaborator of choreographer/dancer Angie Moon, creating new dance works and short films.

Previous mentors include Michael Gordon and Andrew Staniland. Andrew is currently a PhD student in Music Composition at Western University, studying with David Myska and Paul Frehner. He plans to focus his research on the concerns that arise from large form collaborations; particularly those featuring contributions from wide ranging backgrounds.
