Sat   Mar   26   2022 - 2:30 PM Pilot Light

Jil Christensen is a pianist, synthesist, composer and performer, with deep roots planted in the grounds of organic and synthesized sound. Raised in Massachusetts and Vermont, higher educated at Bard, studied with the magic minds of composition and electronic music such as Richard Teitelbaum, DIck Higgins, Wadada Leo Smith, and Joan Tower.

By approaching music as sound first rather than immediately categorizing it into stylistic quadrants, Christensen has developed an magnificent flexibility that has led to working with with an extraordinarily varied list of cohorts including Big Freedia, Polyorchard, Elysian Fields, Mac McCaughan, and Dougie Bowne, and performances at Moogfest, {Re}HAPPENING, Red Bull Music Academy, American Dance Festival, NADA, Fruit Farm Film Festival.

At Big Ears Chistensen will be performing her project INIT with her CP80, moog one, and computer.
