Miller / Tak Ensemble: Ghost Layers
Artist: Miller / Tak Ensemble
Title: Ghost Layers
Label: New Focus
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Composer Scott Miller releases "Ghost Layers" in collaboration with critically acclaimed TAK Ensemble. The album features recent chamber works, all but one of which include an electronic element. Miller's extensive exploration in the electro-acoustic realm informs these works, some of which apply digital techniques to the acoustic writing, while others layer electronics on top of acoustic textures and field recordings embedded in the compositional texture. Scott D. Miller is a New York City-based composer and Artistic Director of the Tilted Head Ensemble, which he founded in 2016. Miller has written extensively for various classical ensembles and has long explored diverse genres. He has composed electroacoustic music, experimental jazz, structured improvisation and works in collaboration with poets, dramatists and visual artists. Miller's works have been performed at MISE-EN, La MaMa, Symphony Space, The Knitting Factory, Roulette, CBGB, P.S. 122, Lincoln Center Library, The DiMenna Center, the Hudson River Museum and many other venues, as well as festivals including the NYC Electroacoustic Music Festival, La nuit de l'instant (Marseille, France) and 10 ans de créations au Moulin a Nef (Auvillar, France).
