Aaron EinbondNew York, NY
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. His recent music has focused on audio transcription as the center of a creative process bridging composition, improvisation, and interpretation, questioning the thresholds of perception between instrument, stage, room, and loudspeaker. Chicago-based Ensemble Dal Niente released his portrait album Without Wordson 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. Recent projects include collaborations with Two New Duo, loadbang, the Riot Ensemble, Samuel Stoll, and an upcoming release with Yarn/Wire on multi.modal records distributed by NMC Recordings. He teaches Music Composition, Sound, and Technology at City, University of London and is Co-Artistic Director of Qubit New Music with whom he curates and produces experimental media in New York.
Einbond has received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, an Artistic Research Residency at Ircam in Paris, and taught at Columbia University, the University of Huddersfield, and Harvard University. He was born in New York in 1978 and studied at Harvard University, the University of Cambridge, the University of California Berkeley, and IRCAM with teachers including Mario Davidovsky, Julian Anderson, Edmund Campion, and Philippe Leroux.
