Jonathan Kramer came to Columbia in 1988, having previously taught at the Oberlin Conservatory, Yale University, and the University of Cincinnati. He has been visiting professor, or visiting composer, at numerous institutions in the USA and abroad. As a scholar of music theory, his research interests include time, meter, and rhythm, in particular complex ratio rhythms, and he has a book in progress on music and postmodernism. As a composer, he works mainly with chamber and orchestral media. Professor Kramer has received fellowships and grants from the NEA (1977, 1984, 1988), the NEH (1976, 1985-86, 1992-93) and other organizations, has won many competitions, and received numerous commissions.
