Joseph Foster Harkins - Fresh Inc Festival 2019.jpg

Fresh Inc Festival - June 2019


George N. Gianopoulos released a fabulous score-video of my Mountain Streams for flute and percussion, performed by my friends              Carly (flute) and Micheal Barnes (perc). View the video here. For more information on the piece, click here.

A recent article entitled Crafting a Composer: Considerations in Creative Constraints by my colleague Daniel Collins reveals some of        my thoughts on the creative process and on the relationship between inspiration and technique. Check out the article by clicking            on the title above.

I spoke with violinist Eric Mrugala on his Everyday Musician Podcast on a wide (wide) breadth of topics musical and otherwise. Find          that podcast at this link. Eric, with his pianist partner Eunjin Lee, commissioned Seabird, with plans to record the piece in Fall 2021.
