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. Anne La Berge teaches the workshop Make and remake.
