Ann La Berge

Anne’s career as a flutist/improviser/composer stretches across international and stylistic boundaries. As well as her own work, she has performed with Cor Fuhler’s Corkestra, David Dramm, Ensemble Modern, Gene Carl, Peter van Bergen’s LOOS ensemble, Musik Fabrik and many others. Her most recent performances bring together the elements on which her international reputation is based: a ferocious and far-reaching virtuosity, a penchant for improvising delicately spun microtonal textures and melodies, and her wholly unique array of powerfully percussive flute effects, all combined with cutting-edge electronics. The last few years have seen a new addition to her work: self-penned enigmatic short stories which slide seamlessly in and out of her compositions and improvisations.
