Chamber Industrial

Per Bloland / ECCE
January 17–September 18, 2014
Concert Hall

The contemporary music ensemble ECCE was in residence in EMPAC’s Concert Hall to make video and audio recordings of works by composer Per Bloland. Best known for his compositions using the electromagnetically-prepared piano, Bloland’s music fuses acoustic instruments with electronic sound, creating a richly unified whole that neither element alone could produce. Bloland has received awards and recognition from IRCAM, ICMA, SEAMUS/ASCAP, and ISCM, among others. His music can be heard on the TauKay (Italy), Capstone, Spektral, and SEAMUS labels, and through MIT Press. ECCE has interpreted works by composers such as Georg Friedrich Haas, Philippe Hurel, Lee Hyla, Helmut Lachenmann, Fabien Levy, Hanspeter Kyburz, Louis Karchin, and many others.
