Barbara Kolb has created a distinctive contemporary form of Impressionism, turbulent yet sensual * Has composed a number of works in which performers "confront their own images on tape" * Electronic work from her residency at IRCAM resulted in Millefoglie, which has been performed in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, and the U.S. * Poetic or visual images often inspire her pieces, as in her orchestral work Grisaille (1978-79), named for the painting technique

Works by Barbara Kolb include:
Solitaire (1971) for piano and pre-recorded tape
Voyants (1991) for piano and chamber orchestra
All in Good Time (1993) for orchestra
"[Kolb] hears timbres as precisely as she manipulates intricate motivic structures." — Chicago Tribune
