Edward Maxwell Dulaney
Assistant Professor of Music; Composition & Theory
214 Dixon Hall


P.h.D., Brandeis University


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.
