Noah Kahrs

I am a first-year PhD student in music theory at the Eastman School of Music. I previously completed an MA in Music Composition, also at Eastman, as well as an undergraduate degree in music and mathematics at the University of Chicago.

I am currently between professional identities in music composition and music theory, so I have replaced my website with a placeholder.

You can hear some of my compositions on my SoundCloud.

I don't have any music theory articles out in published form yet, but some abstracts are floating online [1] [2] [3].

My masters thesis is available through the University of Rochester library website. This thesis contains both an essay, on Abrahamsen's Schnee, and a composition, the recording for which is on SoundCloud.

Here's a field recording of Green Line trains at Garfield Blvd in Chicago.
