Nathan Alef began his musical career long before he can remember, starting formal training on the piano at three years old. He graduated from the University of Oregon Music School with an Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies (performance) in Spring of 2014, and continues to work full time as a composer, arranger, session player, performer, as well as an audio and video producer.
In his early teenage years, he became increasingly drawn to computer-based recording and synthesis/sampling. Starting with a microphone, a minidisc recorder, and a rudimentary computer system, he had no idea audio production would become a career.
In addition, Nathan is also an accomplished music director for theatrical productions, leading his first musical at just eighteen years old (younger than the entire staff and cast). A selected list of Nathan's contributions can be seen on the Projects page.
