Patrick Houlihan

Patrick Houlihan’s music has been called “original and refreshing” (Speight Jenkins). Martin Bookspan wrote that he “treats his materials with imagination” and “displays a keen sensitivity to the [music’s] possibilities.” Some of Houlihan’s compositions have been inspired by special locations, such as At Milsons Point (Sydney) and Snoqualmie Passages (Cascade Mountains). In addition to music for concerts and recitals, his commissions include music for worship, and grants include support for electro-acoustic museum installations in collaboration with sculptor Wallace Mallette. Houlihan is a native of New Orleans and holds degrees from the University of Mississippi and Florida State University.
