J. Harting


I have been composing music since the early 1980’s.  My diverse body of compositions includes incidental music for a dadanewyork production of Jean Cocteau’s Les Maries de la Tour Eiffel, several orchestral pieces, three string quartets, songs, solo pieces and various chamber ensemble pieces. Recently I began experimenting with quartertones and had a premiere of Zephyr for quartertone flute at Roulette in New York City.  I have also just completed a quartertone piece for clarinet, violin, trombone, cello and narrator and am hoping to have it premiered this fall.

My works have been performed at Regent Hall, London, England at the London New Wind Festival, and in New York City at Roulette, Judson Memorial Church, the Knitting Factory, Galapagos, South Oxford Space, Broadway Presbyterian Church, Kathryn Bache Miller Theater, Greenwich House, Greenwich School of Music, Cornelia Street Café, Third Street Settlement School, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Theater for a New City and outside of New York at Wellesley College, Virginia Commonwealth University.  My two extended solo pieces, Coagula for solo clarinet and hoc est corpus meum for solo violin have received national radio airplay in Texas, Colorado and New York.

I earned my M.A. and D.M.A in Music Composition from Columbia University, and my B.M. in Music Composition from Manhattan School of Music.  I studied with Ursula Mamlok, Mario Davidovsky, George Edwards, David Rakowski, Jacques Monod and Harold Seletsky and have taught at Columbia University, Seton Hall University and Touro College.  I currently teach composition and theory privately.
