Critically acclaimed composer, producer and interdisciplinary artist Drew Silverman creates music, sound design and visual productions, frequently presenting work with the dance community. Silverman is most inspired by how sounds and textures found in nature can merge sympathetically with sounds and textures made by machines.
The Austin Chronicle called Silverman's "Gorintō" a "quintessential work which surpasseth all understanding with beauty". The project was also named on the Chronicle's 10 Favorite Arts Related Things of 2019.
Commissions and collaborations include Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company, Austin Dance Festival, Ready|Set|Go!, Sarasota Contemporary Dance, Austin Shakespeare, Me-Mer-Mo-Monday, Drone Camp, as well as multiple original works in collaboration with choreographer Alyson Dolan. GRIT Performance Company, which Drew is a founding member of, was awarded Best in Fest at the 254 Dance Festival in addition to being selected for a residency at New College of Florida in 2015. Silverman was nominated for an Austin Critic's Table award for best Sound Design in 2018, The Austin Chronicle named "Be Still, My Heart" one of the Top 10 Dance and Classical Music Joys of 2018.
