Eric Chasalow is both an electro-acoustic musician and a composer for traditional ensembles. He is especially well known for creating a vivid kind of “super-musique concrete” that combines traditional instruments with manipulated pre-recorded sounds. Chasalow's music has been embraced by performers throughout the world, with recent performances from Boston to Berlin and San Francisco to Seoul. A member of the Brandeis University faculty since 1990, Chasalow directs the Brandeis Electro-Acoustic Music Studio. He produces the biennial BEAMS Electronic Music Marathon as part of the Boston CyberArts Festival. Since 1996 he has curated The Video Archive of Electroacoustic Music, an oral history project chronicling pioneering electronic music composers and engineers from 1950 to the present. He has been honored by the Guggenheim Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, the Fromm Foundation at Harvard, New York Foundation for the Arts, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
