“Gina Biver is a musical force of nature” Gramophone
“A rebel of sorts, or at the very least a provocateur” Textura
“Biver creates a playground for internal exploration that is both fascinating and deeply effective.” I Care If You Listen
“She doesn't look like an art chick that would show up in a dress made of meat but I guess looks can be deceiving... Prepare for a sonic walk on the wild side.” Midwest Review
Gina Biver is a composer of electroacoustic music for chamber ensemble, choir, multimedia, dance, sound installations and film. Her early career as an electric guitarist brought her press from multiple guitar magazines, (Guitar World, Kerrang!, Guitar for the Practicing Musician) with Rock Scene magazine calling her “the best female guitarist in rock today” (which caused her to dream of the day where “female” wasn’t part of the compliment). From performing on some of New York’s biggest stages to subsequent performances with the National Gallery of Art New Music Ensemble in Washington, DC, she still occasionally straps on her guitar in her work with Fuse Ensemble.
Gina has been awarded composer grants from the American Music Center, American Composers Forum, and others, and her work has been performed in the US, Sydney Australia and across Europe and Canada. She continues to collaborate with filmmakers, multimedia and visual artists, DIY instrument makers, poets and painters. Besides the fun of scoring to picture, her film scores have brought her multiple television, video and independent film awards. Forever championing new music, her group Fuse Ensemble has premiered and performed works by several living composers, and she continues to program the work of as many women as men. She lives in Falls Church, VA, with her husband Steve Biver, photographer and author, and their three children.
