Siesky's work as a composer explores the intersections of art and music, bringing
focus to the idiosyncrasies of music creation
and sonic processes. Aestheticism,
psychology, and modern jazz are at the forefront of his compositional influences.
His work has been performed by Hypercube, Invicta Sax Quartet, and Robert Black, among others. His music has
been featured at festivals and conventions including the Charlotte New Music Festival, International Trumpet Guild, and the Society
of Composers International.
Recently, his work for 8.1 channel fixed media entitled "...grind..." was selected for programming on the 2020 SEAMUS National Conference, International New Music Festival at USF, Earth Day Art Model - Telematic Festival, Cube Fest, and NYCEMF. The piece was also selected for the New Music by Living Composers Series with Petrichor Records. Additionally, his work for Large Ensemble and Fixed Media, entitled "Inheritor," was named the winner of the Ensemble Ibis Composition Competition. This summer, his piece for violin, flute, percussion, and prepared piano, entitled "yellow drips from my head," will receive a world premiere at the Atlantic Music Festival in Waterville, Maine.
In addition to his composition activities, Ryne was previously a bandleader, trumpeter, and arranger for the New-Orleans inspired party band, Largemouth Brass Band. Ryne
was also a leader and arranger for the ESPN featured band 24 Infinity. He has also ghostwritten music on several notable video games. On his free time, Ryne is an avid foodie and semi-professional racquetball player.
Ryne earned his Bachelor of Arts in Music from
Virginia Commonwealth University and his
Master of Music in composition from Ohio
University, studying under Robert McClure.
