Kenneth Kirschner

Brooklyn, NY      

Kenneth Kirschner is a composer of experimental music working at the intersection of avant-garde classical composition and contemporary electronic music. His work is characterized by a close integration of acoustic and electronic sound sources; a strong focus on harmony, pattern, and long-form development; and experimentation with techniques such as chance procedures, indeterminacy, and microtonality within a digital context. All of his published work, from the 1980s to present, is freely available on his website, kennethkirschner.com.
