Joseph Klein. 

Joseph Klein is distinguished professor of composition studies in the College of Music at the University of North Texas, where he has served as chair of composition studies since 1999. A composer of solo, chamber, and large ensemble works, Klein has created instrumental, vocal, electroacoustic, and intermedia compositions that reflect an ongoing interest in processes drawn from such sources as geometry, chaos, and systems theory, often inspired by natural phenomena. His compositions have been performed and broadcast internationally, and have been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts, American Composers Forum/Jerome Foundation, the American Music Center, and the Gaudeamus Foundation of Amsterdam, among others. His recorded works are available on the Innova, Centaur, Crystal, and Mark labels.
