Salt Lake Electric Ensemble

Artist Info

  • Genre: Dance/Electronic/EDM
  • Description: The Salt Lake Electric Ensemble (SLEE) formed in 2009 with a dual purpose: to perform and record Terry Riley’s 1964 masterwork In C, and to explore music making with the most powerful and intriguing musical instrument of our time: the computer. SLEE’s 2010 recording of In C, notable for being the first rendition to primarily use electronic instruments, was lauded by critics and audiences throughout the world. Now in 202 SLEE has revisited Riley’s catalog to offer a contemporary interpretation of a mostly neglected classic. Composed just 3 years after In C, Riley’s Olson III bears all of the unique qualities of Riley’s groundbreaking early scores. Be prepared for a mesmerizing, mind-bending journey through an ever changing soundscape. SLEE is a collective that often shifts personnel and instrumentation from project to project and has ranged from 6-9 members. The ensemble’s body of work includes new recordings and performances of music from the essential composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, along with original compositions and improvisations.
