Alex Harker

Alex Harker composes both electroacoustic, instrumental and interactive music. His most recent work focuses on strategies for bringing together these sometimes disparate fields to create an engaging and coherent whole. He first studied composition formally with Gwyn Pritchard in Bristol and has since had numerous composition teachers, including Vic Hoyland, Jonty Harrison, Eric Oña, David Berezan and Scott Wilson. In October 2006 he moved to York to start his PhD study with Ambrose Field and Roger Marsh. His PhD study was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. He is currently a Research Fellow at the University of Huddersfield, working both as a composer, and also as a developer for the HISSTools project. He is also active as a performer of contemporary music in the roles of conductor and laptop performer.
