D.A. Wiley

Musically inclined and creative from as early as he can remember, Devin Anderson Wiley learned to compose by obsessively listening to and analyzing all the film music and classical albums he could find on cassette tape at the local library. He is self-taught on a number of instruments, including piano and guitar. He later had formal studies in piano, orchestral composition and film music.

He has written in wildly varying styles, including instrumental chamber music and full orchestra film scores, hypnotic synth-based soundscapes and pulsating electronic beats, soft acoustic ballads and a driving, 70's-infused rock and roll. His works as singer-songwriter are produced under the moniker D.A. Wiley

His instrumental writing can veer from a simple charming melody into mysterious, darker, and more complex tonality, often with deep emotional resonance. As a composer, he is of two disparate sides, one looking backwards in tribute to the many classic composers who inspired him, while the other half looks for ways to subvert, deconstruct and reimagine.

Recent works include the original music score for Cedric Jouarie's tremendous debut feature film 'The Very Last Day', sound and music for Zachary Zezima's Sundance selected animated short, 'It's a Date', and 'Four-Handed Phantasmagoria', a work for piano, four-hands, which received it's debut performance by Cole Anderson and Siyuan Li at the historic Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, Washington.

He resides in the Pacific Northwest and is currently recording as Saturn Ritual, an ethereal synth-pop collaboration with vocalist/lyricist, Shanie Ringer, and composing new chamber works.
