Vijay Iyer is an American composer, pianist, bandleader, producer, and writer based in New York City. The New York Times has called him a "social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway." He received a MacArthur Fellowship, a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Grammy nomination, and was voted  Downbeat Magazine’s Jazz Artist of the Year four times in the last decade. In 2014 he received a lifetime appointment as the Franklin D. and Florence Rosenblatt Professor of the Arts at Harvard University, where he is jointly appointed in the Department of Music and the Department of African and African American Studies.

Vijay’s releases include 2021’s Uneasy (ECM) with Linda May Han Oh on bass and Tyshawn Sorey on drums; The Transitory Poems (ECM Records, 2019) with pianist Craig Taborn;  Far From Over (ECM, 2017) with the Vijay Iyer Sextet;  A Cosmic Rhythm with Each Stroke (ECM, 2016) with composer-trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith;  Break Stuff (ECM, 2015) with the Vijay Iyer Trio; the score to the film  Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi (ECM, 2014) by filmmaker Prashant Bhargava; and  Holding it Down: The Veterans’ Dreams Project (Pi Recordings, 2013) with poet-performer Mike Ladd.
