Anne La Berge’s career as a flutist/improviser/composer stretches across international and stylistic boundaries. Her performances bring together the various elements on which her reputation is based: ferocious and far-reaching virtuosity, a penchant for microtonal textures and melodies, and her unique array of percussive flute effects, all combined with interactive electronic processing and text.
She performs regularly as a soloist and as a member of the Shackle duo and the MAZE ensemble. She is a founding artist of Splendor Amsterdam, a collective of musicians, who have transformed an old bathhouse in Amsterdam into a cultural Mecca.
She can be heard on music labels such as Largo, Artifact, Etcetera, Hat Art, Frog Peak, Einstein, X-OR, Unsounds, Canal Street, Rambo, Esc.rec., Intackt and Data, in recordings with Ensemble Modern, United Noise Toys, Fonville/La Berge, Rasp/Hasp, Bievre/La Berge, Apricot My Lady, Big Zoom, Corkestra, La Berge/Williamson and MAZE, among others.
Her music is published by Frog Peak Music and Donemus. She is the Managing Director of the Volsap Foundation, which produces innovative music projects. http://annelaberge.com/
