Welcome to the website of Peter Michael von der Nahmer

Peter Michael von der Nahmer (“Mike”) is a composer and sound researcher based in New York City. He has written over 25 works for music theater and dance, and over 50 works for concert and film; many have received national/international awards, and been performed around the world.

Mike’s barrier-breaking, eclectic background explains his passion for music both as artistic expression and as a means to connect disparate cultures. His desire to be an agent of radical connection – to literally create harmony out of apparent dissonance – is his defining motivation. It also defines his work in music therapy, where he seeks to connect art and science.
