Quinn Dougherty is a composer, a lefty, and a depressoid and I’d love to learn more about the sound in my head. I compose scores for cinematographer Carman Spoto, current feature phaesporiamovie.com, premiere TBD. I build space ships with rhythmician Alex Kulick. My collaborations with the visual artist Christina McPhee have been presented by the Babel Working Group in Santa Barbara and in Philadelphia. A piece of mine was once featured on the Muddle Instead of Music podcast. My last gesamtkunstwerk “Francis & The Wolf” premiered in West Chester PA in 2013. In May of 2014 I delivered a paper on paranoia, noise, and electrical cables at the New School’s Center for Transformative Media. I have a BFA from Cooper Union and a PHD in Composition from the University of Pennsylvania. This summer I will premiere pieces by Ryan Fellhauer and Jesse Austin in Philadelphia. The Fringe Festival of 2015 will exhibit a new play called “Second Skull”, it will be a picture of the social brain of freedom.
