Biography of Glen Hall

GLEN HALL
While doing my graduate degree in literature, musicians from Duke Ellington's band suggested I should dedicate myself to music. So I studied at Berklee College of Music, then composition with Gyorgy Ligeti and Mauricio Kagel in Germany. I recorded my first album, The Book of the Heart, with Joanne Brackeen, Cecil McBee and Billy Hart and my second album, The Mother of the Book, with Gil Evans. Both Hallucinations: Music and Words for William S. Burroughs and The Roswell Incident feature trombonist Roswell Rudd. Oasis of Whispers was recorded with drummer William Hooker and Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo. Long wanting to incorporate electroacoustic music into my free jazz, recently I've done artistic residencies at STEIM in Amsterdam and the Electronic Music Foundation in New York. In one of my current groups, EAR-CAM, I'm using Kyma X and CataRT 'instruments' to improvise both on acoustic instruments and electroacoustically. My main project, Rub Out the Word, to mark the centennial year of William Burroughs, is a multi-movement piece for 11-piece group, actor/narrator and visual projections to be premiered at the Music Gallery in Toronto. For the past 13 years, I have been the artistic director the the 416 Toronto Creative Improvisers Festival.
