Rosenzveig Eric (bio ENG)
Eric Rosenzveig (born Montreal, Canada, 1960) first expressed himself properly in sound while doing the weekly radio program/sound collage "This Is Billy Joel" at McGill University in the very early 1980's. As Mr. Joel himself said "hot punk, cool funk, even if its old junk, its still rock 'n roll to me, 2 bar 4/4 snare roll followed by 2 bar 4/4 repeated single guitar chord".
In the following ten years he made music with the improvised music/power trio FAT playing electric guitar; then from 1991 created intermedia works with the visual artist Willy Le Maitre. His work with Le Maitre encompassed improvisations to tape, live performed media, interactive installations and autonomous systems - artworks that made artworks. Our over-technologized & video soaked society and its public spaces, consumer mores and detritus were subject matter.
In addition to his work with Le Maitre, Eric has created soundtracks and
had an active career as a curator of contemporary musics from diverse
cultures. He now lives and works in the Czech Republic.
