The following is a statement from the Binghamton Theatre Organ Society

"Nathan Avakian is a multi-talented artist with specialized interests and experience in organ performance, musical arrangement and composition, and lighting design.

Nathan is renowned for his tasteful blending of 21st-century virtual instrument technology with theatre organ music.

He arranges and produces digital orchestration tracks to supplement the pipe organ, creating performances that satisfy contemporary musical tastes and pay tribute to the historical legacy of the theatre organ. Nathan frequently includes original organ and solo piano compositions in his performances.

In 2010, he was commissioned to compose six original theatre organ soundtracks for the International Youth Silent Film Festival, a program that gives young filmmakers the opportunity to create contemporary silent films to theatre organ music.

He helped pioneer the festival's expansion which now includes regional festivals in Oregon, Ohio, Adelaide and Melbourne, Australia."
