Currently Assistant Professor of Composition & Theory at Tulane University, Maxwell Dulaney received his Ph.D. in Composition & Theory from Brandeis University, where he studied with David Rakowski, Marty Boykan, Eric Chasalow, and Yu-Hui Chang. As an acoustic and electro-‐acoustic composer, his compositional philosophy is rooted in the study of sound and finding new and informed ways of developing compositional structures out of the elemental aspects of sound.
Dr. Dulaney has been commissioned by, and collaborated closely with, soloists and ensembles including Orlando Cela, Chris Finkel, New York New Music Ensemble, the Xanthos Ensemble, and Grammy Award-winning harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy. Recent projects include a commission by ECCE, In Ricordo di un Anima Antica for cello and clarinet in B - Flat, and the commission of The Old Harp for the Ningbo University Orchestra.
Upcoming concerts include performances by the Randall College Orchestra in Lynchburg, VA and the Versipel New Music Collective in New Orleans, LA. Future projects include a new piece for solo flute for Orlando Cela, which will be performed on a series of concerts in 2015 and a new work for the full ensemble of ECCE to be performed on their 2015-16 season. Dr. Dulaney has been published in the SCI Journal of Musical Scores, Vol. 45 and his music has been recorded on Rainbow Classical label by the ensemble Mikrokosmos.
