The Barnard music program shines a well-deserved light on the career of Judith Shatin, a composer and sound artist whose music, according to The Washington Post, is “highly inventive…on every level; hugely enjoyable and deeply involving with a constant sense of surprise.” Drawing from the rich cornucopia of sounds that surround us, Shatin creates arresting compositions from everything from the roar of machines to the shuttle of a wooden loom. Shatin’s music has been commissioned by the National Endowment for the Arts, and has been celebrated throughout the world, from Brooklyn to Brahmshaus. Always in demand as a master teacher, she has served as BMI composer-in-residence at Vanderbilt University, master artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and senior composer at the Wellesley Composers Conference.
