Kala Pierson biography
Kala Pierson (born 1977) is an American composer and sound artist. Her vivid, expressive, and rhythmically free works have been performed by prominent ensembles and soloists in more than 25 countries on six continents, and widely commissioned.
Her music's “seductive textures and angular harmonies” (Washington Post) are “intricately structured, both mathematical and lyrical” (Dnevnik). Much of her music includes text (whether sung by voices or used in other ways), and she focuses on texts of cultural and political significance by living writers, producing works of “marvelous political power” (Louis Andriessen).
