Dorothy HindmanComposer in Residence

    Dorothy Hindman has emerged as one of the most interesting composers of her generation. Her music, a blend of punk/grunge with a European spectralist sensibility has been called “intense, gripping, and frenetic,” and “a showpiece experience for the performer and an engaging and refreshing one for the listener.”

    In 2015-2016, her music will receive more than forty performances including a chamber music retrospective concert at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in March 8. International performances of her music this season include France, Germany, Copenhagen, Sicily, Estonia, London, and Montreal, and festivals including Iron Composer 2015, the Australian Flute Festival, the Havana Contemporary Music Festival, the Festival Eleazar de Carvalho in Brazil, the 2015 Birmingham New Music Festival, and New Music Greensboro.

    Hindman has composed for top performers including Bent Frequency Duo, Empire City Men’s Chorus, bassist Robert Black, cellist Craig Hultgren, guitarist Paul Bowman, percussionist Stuart Gerber, and Corona Guitar Kvartet. Orchestra performances include the Women’s Philharmonic Orchestra, the Alabama Symphony, the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, and the North Florida Symphony Orchestra.

    Her music appears on ten CDs, including her critically-acclaimed Tapping the Furnace (innova). Other labels include Albany, Capstone, and Living Artists. Scores available from Subito Music, NoteNova, and dorn/Needham. dorothyhindman.org
