About the Artist
First active in the downtown improv scene of NYC in the mid 80’s Leslie Ross has immersed herself in experimental music ever since. Her connected, parallel, work as baroque bassoon builder also opened up into explorations of invented instruments and sound installations at the same time
She has presented solo acoustic and electro-acoustic programs, played and toured with numerous other improving musicians, and has shown her sound installations and constructed instruments throughout Europe and the US.
Ross’s explorations of multiphonics (freely available as a practical pedagogical analysis on her website) and the subtle tonal changes made when playing with resonance keys is what brought her to the current multiple microphone set-up, and is used on her new CD, drop by drop, suddenly.
In June 2014 she relocated music studio, workshop and living quarters to an old canning factory in rural Maine, where she also now houses The Cannery at South Penobscot, a performance and sound installation venue and residency program.
