Pascal Le Boeuf

Princeton, NJ            

Described as “sleek, new” and “hyper-fluent” by the New York Times, Pascal Le Boeuf is a Grammy-nominated composer, pianist, and electronic artist whose works range from modern improvised music to cross-breeding classical with production-based technology. He is widely recognized for his polyrhythmic approach to chamber music and hybridization of disparate idioms.

Recent projects include commercial recordings and videos with JACK Quartet, Nick Photinos (Eighth Blackbird), Barbora Kolářová, Jessica Meyer, Dave Eggar, Sarah Goldfeather, Robby Bowen, Hub New Music, and Shattered Glass. As a keyboardist, Pascal has played as support for D’Angelo’s “Black Messiah” tour and Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” tour with Australian pop artist Meg Mac. He actively tours with Le Boeuf Brothers, jazz vocalist Allan Harris, Friction Quartet, and his piano trio “Pascal’s Triangle” featuring bassist Linda May Han Oh, and drummer Justin Brown. He is a Ph.D. candidate and Naumburg Doctoral Fellow in music composition at Princeton University.

“The pianist Pascal Le Boeuf has a sleek new album, “Pascal’s Triangle” (Nineteen-Eight Records), that features the advanced-propulsion rhythm team of bassist Linda Oh and drummer Justin Brown.”(New York Times)

“Pianist Pascal Le Boeuf is a 21st century renaissance man. He’s made inroads in the worlds of classical music, indie-rock, and jazz . . . here is at least as much Debussy evident in his compositional style as there is Bill Evans . . . listeners who prefer quality over flash will be amply rewarded.” (The Rochester City Paper)

“Pascal Le Boeuf has a strong percussive element to his playing, which he combines with a keen sense of dynamics.” (Downbeat Magazine)

Empty Promise

Empty Promise is a social critique that uses human relationship metaphors to highlight our emotional dependence on technology. After working together at the 2015 Bang On A Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA, musicians Pascal Le Boeuf, Sarah Goldfeather, and Robby Bowen engaged the video production team Four/Ten Media (comprised of Evan Chapman and Kevin Eikenberg) to bring their music to the screen. Empty Promise features all the above as well as cameo appearances by a variety of notable musicians from the New York creative community.
