Canadian violinist and composer Eric Kenneth Malcolm Clark is a prolific performer of new and experimental music, as well as an accomplished free improviser. A recent addition to New York, he spent the past two years in LA studying composition with the musical maverick James Tenney. Mr. Clark has performed throughout Canada, the US, Europe, and Australia, recently completing a tour of Belgium and Oslo with his high octane group Skakk Trio. He also enjoyed a series of performances as violinist with the legendary west coast new music group California EAR Unit last spring 2006. Other notable recent appearances include the 2007 neither/nor festival in Toronto, the 2006 Minimalist Jukebox in Walt Disney Concert Hall, Michael Gordon’s new opera What to Wear and his Symphony Decasia, and the Creative Music Festival at RedCat.
Compositionally, Mr. Clark is a diverse composer, ranging from writing for hearing-deprived musicians to improvisation works for his bands in New York and Europe. He has recently returned from the neither/nor new music festival in Toronto, in which he performed and presented his works Mein Schatz and Slaughter Series I-IV. Mr. Clark has had music performed by members of Bang on a Can, the California EAR Unit, and the Bozzini Quartet, among many others.
