Biography

Doug Harbin (b. 1980) is a composer, performer, and educator residing in Moorhead, Minnesota. He composes acoustic and electroacoustic systematic music and his works have been performed throughout the world including Australia, Canada, China, England, Finland, South Korea, and the United States. Much of his music utilizes a method dubbed the 'Take-Away System', which applies modular arithmetic over a finite set. 

His pieces have been included in regional, national and international conferences by the Society of Composers Inc., College Music Society, ClarinetFest, Flute New Music Consortium, and the CFAMC. Many renown ensembles have performed his works including the American Contemporary Ensemble, Arizona Contemporary Music Ensemble, Arizona State University Symphonic Orchestra, Cantata Profana, The Concordia Orchestra, Mercian Piano Trio, Ohio New Music Ensemble, Soprani Compagni, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet.

As a pianist, he has premiered many new works by emerging composers and performs in recitals most recently featuring the music of George Crumb, Mario Davidovsky, and Armando Guevara Ochoa.

He holds degrees from Arizona State University (DMA music composition), Ball State University (MM music composition) and Taylor University (BA in mathematics and BM in music composition) and has been on faculty at several institutions including Arizona State University, Grand Canyon University, Mesa Community College, and Taylor University. He is currently Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition at Concordia College (Moorhead, MN) and on faculty with the Soiva International Music Camp.
