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

His music has been performed in New York at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, Town Hall, Ecstatic Music Festival, Hayden Planetarium/AMNH, The Public Theater/Joe's Pub, ISSUE Project Room, Roulette, National Sawdust, and Le Poisson Rouge, among many 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 (Kraków), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), and The Warhol Museum, among others.  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.
