Scott Brickman is Professor of Music and Education and Chair of the Arts and Humanities Division at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, where he has been teaching since 1997. Originally from Chicago, Scott attended the University of Wisconsin (B.M. in Composition) and Brandeis University (Ph. D. in Music Theory and Composition). He is a member of SEAMUS, SCI where he has served as the co-chair of Region I since 1999, and CMS where he served as treasurer (hint, hint, hint) of the Northeast Chapter from 2001-2005.
Scott is primarily active as a composer. His music is recorded on the New Ariel, Capstone, SEAMUS, and ERM labels. Ravello Records, a branch of the Parma label, released a CD of his solo and chamber music, Winter and Construction, in April of 2012. This past year his music saw premieres by the Generous Ensemble (Vary Varied Vexations), Tower Duo (Epic Suite), and Italian pianist Giovanni Sorana took his Toccata – Molto Liberamente on his spring tour of the US. This April, he will have three premieres; violist Ina Litera and pianist Jean Kim will perform his Partita at Manhattan Community College on April 10, Crosslake for violin, clarinet and piano will be introduced by the ensemble Crossisland on April 15, and pianist John Newell will perform Seascape on April 28. Scott is arriving late for this NECMT Conference because he is performing his Solo over changes (2011) for piano and digital audio on April 11, at the SCI Region VI Conference at Clark College in Dubuque, Iowa. Scott’s theoretical interests include pedagogy, 19th Century women composers, and set theory. Since 2002 he has served as an AP Music Reader. He presented a paper on teaching composition through ear training to Kindergarten Students at Michigan State’s New Direction is Music Education Conference. He has presented papers on the music of Fanny Hensel (the subject of the analytic portion of his dissertation) and Clara Schumann at Conferences about Hensel and Robert Schumann at FSU and Texas Tech. Most recently, he presented a power point that describes relationships amongst octatonic sub sets, illustrated by a simple java program, at a SCI Region VI Conference at Central Missouri.
