Composer of the Month June 2021: Katherine Balch

Katherine BalchThe music of composer Katherine Balch captures the magic of everyday sounds, inviting audiences into a sonic world characterized by imagination, discovery, and stylistic variety. Often inspired by literature, nature, and science, she has been described as “some kind of musical Thomas Edison – you can just hear her tinkering around in her workshop, putting together new sounds and textural ideas” (San Francisco Chronicle). Katherine’s work has been commissioned and performed by leading ensembles including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the London Sinfonietta, the Argus quartet, and the symphony orchestras of Minnesota, Oregon, Albany, Indianapolis, California, Dallas, and Tokyo. She has been featured on IRCAM’s ManiFeste and Festival MANCA in France, Suntory Summer Arts and Takefu festivals in Japan, and the Aspen, Norfolk, Santa Fe, and Tanglewood festivals in the United States. She is currently in residence at the American Academy in Rome as the 2020-2021 Elliot Carter Rome Prize Fellow. Her music is published exclusively worldwide by Schott. When not making or listening to music, she can be found building windchimes, hiking, cooking, or napping with her feline sidekick, Zarathustra.
