Her works have been performed and read by professional orchestras including the Women’s Philharmonic Orchestra (San Francisco), the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, the Kiev Philharmonic, the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, and the North Florida Symphony Orchestra, and by prominent youth orchestras Greater Miami Youth Symphony, South Florida Youth Symphony, and the Etowah Youth Orchestra. Collaborations with visual artists include music for the Italian Dreams video artist/photographer Carrie Mae Weems, and the installation The Wall Calls to Me in collaboration with artist Sally Wood Johnson, exhibited in major museums throughout the Southeast, including the Huntsville Museum of Art, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Mobile Museum of Art, and other galleries.

Hindman’s awards, fellowships, grants and recognition include a 2015 Artist Access Grant from the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, 2015 Winner of Audience Favorite and Second Prize, Analog Arts’ Iron Composer, a 2015 University of Miami Provost Research Award, 2013 Award of Excellence, and Award of Merit, Global Music Awards for Creativity/Originality for Tapping the Furnace, the Almquist Choral Composition Award, a Nancy Van de Vate International Composition Prize for Opera, Winner of the International Society of Bassists Solo Composition Competition, an Alabama State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship, and Winner of the NACUSA Young Composers Competition.

Hindman’s music is unique and multilayered, revealing deep organization on every level. Elements of her personal style include economy of materials; works such as “drowningXnumbers” for amplified cello (1994 for Craig Hultgren) show intense extension and development of a single idea to create complex organic structures. She favors symmetrical harmonies and consonance, and uses timbre as a structural element. Recent works employ spectral techniques. Form arises from the material, with juxtaposition, fragmentation, and combination serving to prolong moods throughout a work. Driving, motoric rhythms contribute immediate surface impact to the music.

Hindman’s work usually deals with political themes and the history of places, and how that history is distorted through the lens of contemporary individual perception. Some works, such as Monumenti for violin and cello and centro for violin and piano, both written at the American Academy in Rome in 2005, explore the relationship of the modern individual to the physical and artistic remains of past civilizations. More recent works such as Tapping the Furnace for speaking percussionist (2006) and Nine Churches for guitar quartet and chamber orchestra (2006-7) focus on the cultural, social and economic legacies of industrialization, slavery, and racist policies in the New South.

Her work is usually perceptually based in the individual (Drift, Jerusalem Windows, Monumenti), informed by her own phenomenological investigations of how music functions, based on the writings of Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger. There is often, as with history, a presentation of incomplete ideas, which are intended to be completed in the mind of the listener. It is a language of connotations; within each piece, a new syntax is fully established to allow the perceptive, active listener to respond to or to complete fragmentary statements, which the composer, in turn, comments upon, verifies or denies later in the work. There is a deliberate engagement of the listener, a demand upon one’s attention which is rewarded through correspondence.

Dorothy Hindman (born March 13, 1966, in Miami, Florida) is an American composer and music educator.

Born in Miami, Florida in 1966, Hindman had intense early exposure to classical music from her mother, Dorothy Hindman Lyon, a gifted classical pianist and scientist, and her father, William Murphy Hindman, an actor and manager at that time of WTMI, Miami’s classical radio station. Formal music study began late for her, at age 16, when she entered Miami-Dade College as a piano major with the intention to study synthesis. This path led her to avant-garde electronic music and at 19 she began a composition major at the University of Miami, studying with composer Dennis Kam, and graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music in 1988. Her studies continued at Duke University with Stephen Jaffe and Thomas Oboe Lee, receiving her Master of Arts in the composition in 1989. In 1990, she became a University Fellow at the University of Miami, resuming her studies with Dennis Kam, with whom she shared deep interests in philosophy, musical meaning, individual perception, originality, and profundity. In November–December 1994, she completed additional studies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts with composer Louis Andriessen, reflected in her interests in the formal structures of Bach and Stravinsky as well as her adaptations of social and popular influences in her music.
