Aaron Einbond: Reproduction as Composition: searching and re-searching in recent music (Sonic Materialities Lab). Wednesday 27 February, 12-2pm, CM107.

Dr. Aaron Einbond (Senior Lecturer in Music, City, University of London) will present his recent work for instruments and electronics, positing composition as an act of searching for, retrieving, and sharing musical material rather than creating it “new”. He will elaborate on his practice using field recording, audio transcription, site-specific performance, and technology as timbral and expressive resources. 

Aaron Einbond’s work explores the intersection of instrumental music, sound installation, field recording, and technology, bringing the spontaneity of live performance together with computer interactivity. Recently Chicago-based Ensemble Dal Niente released his portrait album Without Words on Carrier Records, SWR Experimentalstudio produced his Giga-Hertz prizewinning Cartographies for piano with two performers and electronics for the 47-loudspeaker Klangdom at ZKM in Karlsruhe, and the Académie du Festival d’Aix and Opera Lab Berlin co-produced his site-specific ambient chamber opera Hidden in Plain Sight in the streets of Aix-en-Provence. Current projects include collaborations with Yarn/Wire, TwoNewDuo, loadbang, the Riot Ensemble, and Samuel Stoll. He teaches Music Composition, Sound, and Technology at City, University of London and is Co-Artistic Director of Qubit New Music Initiative with whom he curates and produces experimental media in New York.
