Rebecca Larkin is a musical storyteller. As a composer and flutist, her music conveys an unraveling narrative that she and her audience can interpret in any way they wish.
Inspired by soundtracks and concert music alike, Rebecca writes visual music for the stage and screen. She has been named a finalist for the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer awards and a scholar for the Game Audio Network Guild (GANG). She is an enthusiastic collaborator and constantly seeks opportunities to create new cross-disciplinary work.
An active performer of new music, Rebecca has recently been a featured soloist with the North Country Electronic Music Festival and the Oregon Bach Festival Composers Symposium. Rebecca is the flutist, founder, and director of Wind Speaks, a woodwind centered ensemble that performs music by living composers. From NASA to Steampunk, Wind Speaks performs music that responds to the world we live in.
Rebecca received her B.M. Flute Performance degree from Ohio Wesleyan University where she studied flute with Nancy Gamso and Randall Hester and composition with Jennifer Jolley and Clint Needham. She recently earned her M.M. Composition degree from the University of Oregon where she studied composition with Robert Kyr and David Crumb and flute with Molly Barth.
When Rebecca is not composing or performing, she is an avid gamer and spends quality time with her rabbit, Oreo.
