TRANSMISSION ART ARCHIVE
Linda Dusman’s compositions and sonic art explore the richness of contemporary life, from the personal to the political. Her recently released solo CD "I need no words" contains sonic reflections on a variety of texts, from Joan Retallack to Emily Dickinson. Recent works include "Interiors" for solo piano, and "Subterranea" for percussion quartet. Her music has been awarded by the International Alliance for Women in Music, the State of Maryland (in both the Music: Composition and the Visual Arts: Media categories), and the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, among others. Her compositions are published by I Resound Press, and are recorded on the NEUMA, Capstone, and New Albany labels. As a frequent contributor to the literature on contemporary music and performance, Dr. Dusman’s articles have appeared in the journals Link, Perspectives of New Music, and Interface, as well as a number of anthologies. She was a founding editor of the journal Women and Music: A Journal of Gender and Culture, and is as an associate editor for Perspectives of New Music. Recently, she founded I Resound Press, a digital archive for music by women composers. Dr. Dusman is a Professor of Music at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), and serves as Chair of the Music Department there. Prior to her tenure at UMBC, she held the Jeppson Chair in Music at Clark University in Massachusetts.
