He joined UNT as an assistant professor of composition and music theory in 1976, attaining the rank of associate professor in 1983 and professor of music in 1991.
Clark has completed more than forty musical compositions in virtually all mediums, including multimedia with dance, visual art, film, electronic and computer music, orchestra, band, chorus and chamber music, many of which have been performed nationally and internationally. He has extensive performing experience as a trombonist with orchestra, in chamber music ensembles and as a soloist, as well as a choral vocalist and a conductor of contemporary music.
