Rashad's Ambisonic performance at Forum Stadtpark is Part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
Rashad Becker is a composer and musician residing in Berlin. His compositions are multilayered narratives populated by an ensemble of sonic entities, some smug, some shy,some agitators, others ready to surrender. Often there’s a tragic-comical touch, like a cartoon version of what could be a requiem from a dream (or just as much a fertility dance from another dimension).
Recent works include the cycle ‘Traditional Music Of Notional Species’ released across two volumes on PAN, and a multi-part work called ‘Based On A True Story‘ that derives scores from historical occurrences in a sort of ‘sonic staging’. In this context, he is currently commissioned by New York-based ensemble Alarm Will Sound and Berlin string ensemble Kaleidoskop.
Rashad is mainly active as a solo artist but finds himself in a series of permanent collaborations alongside Eli Keszler, Moritz von Oswald and as a member of the formation Moleglove. Other and more sporadic collaborators have been Okkyung Lee, Andre Vida, Ashley Paul, and Valerio Tricoli.
