Amy Denio received 2007 GAP Award funding to cover the artist’s fee to compose, record, and produce the sound track for Loud Omission, a new dance piece created by choreographer Carla Barragan. Loud Omission features four dancers, video, and visual projections of paintings by Ecuadorian artist Paula Barragan and Amy’s original recorded music score. The piece will premiere in Seattle in the winter of 2007/08.

Amy received 2004 GAP Award funding to supplement the artist’s own time and expenses while producing print-ready masters of three collections of music compositions. The resulting project will entail a minimum of 200 hours of work devoted to setting and editing scores. Included among the scores will be a 20 sax quartet composition, basic charts for 20 song compositions, and a 10-song cycle Non Lo So, Polo, as orchestrated for chamber octet and four voices.

Amy also received a 1995 Fellowship and a 2000 GAP Award from Artist Trust.
