With numerous prizes, including the Prix de Rome, the Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Lili Boulanger Prize, Kamran Ince has distinguished himself in particular as a composer able to bridge East and West. Born in Montana in 1960 to American and Turkish parents, he was brought up in Turkey, and trained at the Ankara and Izmir State Conservatories, before returning to America at the beginning of the 1980s to work with Christopher Rouse and Joseph Schwantner at Oberlin and the Eastman School of Music, gaining his doctorate. He currently serves as Professor of Composition at the University of Memphis and as Co-Director of MIAM at Istanbul Technical University.

His works have been played by leading orchestras and concerts devoted to his music have been heard at the Holland Festival, CBC Encounter Series in Toronto, the Istanbul International Music Festival, the Estoril Festival in Lisbon, and the Cultural Influences in Globalization Festival in Ho Chi Minh City. Projects include Far Variations (2009), commissioned by Arizona Friends of Chamber Music for the Los Angeles Piano Quartet; Concerto for Orchestra Turkish Instruments and Voices (2002, rev. 2009), for the Turkish Ministry of Culture; Dreamlines (2008), celebrating the centennial of the Turkish Chamber of Architects; Music for a Lost Earth (Ambient Music Project) (2007); Gloria (Everywhere) (2007), for Chanticleer’s Mass Project; Turquoise (2005), various works arranged for the Netherlands Blazers Ensemble; and his Fifth Symphony ‘Galatasaray’ (2005), in honour of the Turkish soccer club’s centennial celebrations. His recordings for Naxos include his Symphony No. 3 ‘Siege of Vienna’ and Symphony No. 4 ‘Sardis’. He continues to work on Judgment of Midas, an opera commissioned by Crawford Greenewalt, Jr III, to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Sardis excavations in Turkey.

His music is published by Schott Music Corporation.
