Alec Hall is a composer in New York City. His work attempts to re-imagine the possibilities of acoustic materials in the post-Avant-Garde musical landscape. Composing with forms of sonic representation to address urgent non-musical debates, his work is as aesthetically polycentric as it is politically engaged. His compositions have had been performed by such groups as the Ensemble SurPlus, Ensemble Intercontemporain, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France, JACK Quartet, ICE, Talea Ensemble, Either/OR, Wet Ink, Continuum, Ensemble Pamplemousse, Ekmeles, the Cecilia String Quartet, and soloists Séverine Ballon, Stephane Ginsburgh and David Broome. Alec is the co-founder of Qubit and currently serves as its co-artistic director. He holds a DMA from Columbia University, an MA from UC San Diego, and is a 2017 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial fellow.
