Nikki Krumwiede

Composer

 

Dr. Nikki Krumwiede is a composer and pianist currently residing in Moore, Oklahoma. She earned an MM in composition in Spring 2019, and her DMA in Composition in 2022 from the University of Oklahoma where she served as a graduate assistant to the composition area and directs the New Century improv! Ensemble. She writes a variety of music, from contemporary classical to experimental, electronic, and improvisational.

 

Nikki's goal is to create music that is engaging for performers and allows for flexibility and interpretation. Much of her music draws upon her experience as an improv performer and asks musicians to create along with her, whether through improvisation, selection of unspecified pitch, or a flexible rhythmic structure. She consciously attempts to incorporate various musical techniques and genres (such as electronic music and improv), as well as her background in writing and literature, into her compositional process in a way that is engaging to a diverse audience.
