Christian Erickson holds degrees in music composition from the University of Wyoming, the University of Nebraska, and the University of Colorado. He currently makes his home in the mountain hamlet of Story, WY where he divides his time between completing commissions for original compositions, providing orchestration and notation services, designing sound for live theatre, and teaching courses in music and music technology at Sheridan College.
Dr. Erickson has produced works in a variety of genres and styles. His music features an eclectic mix of influences ranging from Impressionism to jazz to non-Western music. He has enjoyed premieres both regionally and nationally. Recent projects include the children’s theatre work Xena the Zebra, a collaboration with playwright Doug Reitinger and lyricist Marion Niedringhaus; Danzas de los Matachines for string quartet; and a piece for Sheridan College clarinet instructor Jason Gresl entitled Phantasmagoria: an apparition for clarinet and electronics.
