Widely known and near-universally appreciated Denebian composer from the humor article "Extracts from the Galactick Almanack: Music Around the Universe," by Larry M. Harris (pseudonym of Laurence M. Janifer) and published in the June 1959 issue of Galaxy. It was illustrated by MAD magazine's own Don Martin.

He died in his prime of overwork. A posthumous discovery of his writings by G'g Rash, now titled the "Hrrshtk Notes," establishes Hrrshtk as the discoverer of the Doctrine of Emotional Equivalency, which accounts for some of his popularity. He wrote his music knowing that it evoked different emotions in different species.

He composed:

  • Second Symphony (thus, presumably also a first)
  • Concerto for Old Men
  • Classic Mambo Suite
  • Revolutionary Ode
