Terroir New Music
An event series dedicated to collaborations between local performers, living composers, and culinary professionals.
Along with composer Susanna Hancock, Tyler serves as co-artistic director of Terroir New Music, a contemporary music series that seeks to create a unique musical and dining experience, as well as cultivate a community around local food, beverage, and music by presenting new music in collaboration with local bars, breweries, and restaurants.
The word “terroir” (ter-wahr) is defined as the complete natural environment that a particular wine is produced within, consisting of factors such as the soil, climate, and topography. The environment is what influences the unique characteristics of a particular wine, so we thought it was fitting to create a music series with a focus on local composers paired with local food or drink.
