Joseph Foster Harkins - Fresh Inc Festival 2019.jpg

Fresh Inc Festival - June 2019


Youghiogheny, or Yough, originally a trio composed for the East Coast Contemporary Ensemble's 2021 Etchings Festival and now the            first movement of Rivers Three, was awarded a Finalist nod for the 2022 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. For more              information on the piece, click here.

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.
