Aaron Einbond’s work explores the intersection of instrumental music, field recording, sound installation, and interactive technology, focusing on collaboration and transcription at the center of a creative process questioning the thresholds of perception between instrument, loudspeaker, stage, and place. Chicago-based Ensemble Dal Niente released his portrait album Without Words on Carrier Records and he collaborated with Yarn/Wire and Matilde Meireles on the album Cities released on multi.modal distributed by NMC Recordings. Alvise Sinivia premiered Cosmologies for piano and three-dimensional electronics produced by Ircam at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, SWR Experimentalstudio produced Cartographies for piano with two performers and electronics for the 43.4-loudspeaker Kubus 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. Other recent projects include collaborations with the Riot Ensemble, soundinitiative, Two New Duo, loadbang, Samuel Stoll, and Marco Fusi. 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, a Gigahertz Production Award and EASTN-DC Residency at ZKM, VERTIGO STARTS and Artistic Research Residencies at Ircam, 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 Royal College of Music London, the University of California Berkeley, and Ircam with teachers including Mario Davidovsky, Julian Anderson, Edmund Campion, and Philippe Leroux.
