Canadian composer Marc Sabat has been based in Berlin since 1999. His work with acoustic instruments and electronics draws inspiration from investigations of the sounding and perception of Just Intonation, American folk and experimental musics, and the relations between musical and visual artforms. His pieces have been presented internationally in radio broadcasts and at festivals of new music including the Donaueschinger Musiktage, MaerzMusik, Darmstadt and Carnegie Hall. Recordings and scores are available from Plainsound Music Edition, and upcoming CDs of his music are planned for release from World Edition (Köln) and mode records (New York).

Sabat studied at the University of Toronto, at the Juilliard School in New York, as well as working privately with Malcolm Goldstein, James Tenney and Walter Zimmermann. He teaches at the Universität der Künste Berlin, and has been a guest artist at the California Institute of the Arts, at the Escola Superior in Barcelona and the Paris Conservatoire. In 2010, he will be an artist-in-residence of the Villa Aurora in Los Angeles, followed by a one year residency at the German Academy in Rome, Villa Massimo.

This event is funded by the UC Berkeley Graduate Assembly and the CNMAT Users Group.
