Dates of existence

1953 -


Barbara Monk Feldman was born in Québec in 1953. A composer of mainly chamber works, she studied composition with Bengt Hambræus at McGill University in Montréal from 1980 to 1983, where she earned her master’s degree in Music. She then went on to study with Morton Feldman – whom she later married – at the State University of New York at Buffalo from 1984 to 1987, earning her PhD on the Edgard Varèse Fellowship. Following her doctorate studies, she served on the faculty at Ferienkurse in Darmstadt in 1988, 1990, and 1994 and has guest-lectured at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin as well as universities in Canada and the United States.

Throughout her career, her works have been performed in Asia, Europe, and North America and her research in music and the visual arts has led to collaborations with numerous artists, including Stan Brakhage, whose hand-painted film Three Homerics was created specifically for use with her piece Infinite Other. In 2001, she founded the Time Shards Music Series at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe and has since served as its artistic director.
