Nick Hallett is a composer, vocalist, and cultural producer working between the worlds of music, art, and performance.

Based in Brooklyn, his efforts have been presented in recent years by the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Ecstatic Music Festival, The Kitchen, The Public Theater/Joe's Pub, ISSUE Project Room, Roulette, National Sawdust, and Le Poisson Rouge, among others. In 2017, he completed a trilogy of evening-length scores for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company's Analogy cycle.  These works, in addition to other collaborations with the company, continue to tour worldwide.

His first opera, co-authored with artist Shana Moulton, Whispering Pines 10, premiered at The Kitchen in April 2010 and has since been staged at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, SFMOMA, Carolina Performing Arts, Portland Institute of Contemporary Art's TBA Festival, Cricoteka (Poland), and The Warhol Museum.  Hallett and Moulton were awarded a Creative Capital grant to adapt the project for the Internet.  His second opera, titled To Music, is currently in development.
