Patrick Harlin

The New York Times writes that Patrick Harlin's “aesthetics capture a sense of tradition and innovation…” and that “Mr Harlin is breaking new ground.”

Patrick Harlin completed his doctorate at the University of Michigan in 2016.   His work spans both music composition and the field of soundscape ecology, research that has taken him to remote regions of the United States and Amazon Rainforest. Patrick collects field recordings on location for inclusion into music including his dissertation.

Awards include a 2013 Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Presser Awardfrom the Theodore Presser Foundation. Patrick is the first recipient of the Aspen/Hermitage residency, and the final awardee of the Rappaport Prize in Composition.  

His music has been performed by the St. Louis Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic, Alarm Will Sound, Rochester Philharmonic, Kansas City Symphony, Calidore String Quartet, Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, and many more.  

A recent Calgary Herald review notes "Rapture demonstrated both imagination and skill, qualities that are self-recommending. One can only hope for more performances and a bright future for the talented young composer."
