(Die Rheinpfalz Zeitung) [His]music reflects the ambience and musical approach of the North American musical tradition. Compositional eclecticism, a conscience, playful and uninhibited attitude with tradition and the crossover between “serious” and vernacular music. All these elements are to be found as well as the most advanced structural and aural techniques.” (Die Rheinpfalz Zeitung) Hulme studied at the Eastman School of Music and Yale University and was a Fulbright Scholar at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna, Austria.
