Stephen Chase


Stephen Chase composes, improvises, and walks quite a lot. His work veers erratically between generative ideas and following-his-nose, and is drawn to such things as the relationship between physical action and sound production, group interaction, and the acoustic characteristics of indoor and outdoor spaces. Co-conspirators and performing comrades have included Exaudi, Quatuor Bozzini, Philip Thomas, Choir Brevis, Music We’d Like to Hear, Bank Street Arts, CoMA, Ryoko Akama, Patrick Farmer, Ross Parfitt, Coastguard All Stars, Mick Beck, Taku Sugimoto, piggle, Luke Poot, and Freaking Glamorous Teapot. He is co-editor of Changing the System: The Music of Christian Wolff (Ashgate/Routledge), and convenes the occasional performance series, mon se taire truc.
