SANTA MONICA—Ulrich Krieger will be performing at the Santa Monica Public Library on Wednesday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m.

Krieger, a composer from Germany, is well known for his experimentation with different kinds of music and sounds, such as rock, electric, silence, and noise. He also plays the saxophone using different manipulations of sound and orchestra electronically. He has written for Ensemble United Berlin, Seth Josel, and Soldier String Quartet, and many of his compositions are performed in America.

After living in Venice, Australia, Berlin, and New York, Krieger currently resides in California. He teaches composition and experimental sound practice at the California Institution for the Arts in Los Angeles as an associate professor.

He has manipulated his own sound on the saxophone, calling his invention “acoustic electronics.” He will demonstrate this practice in his performance of “Universe” on March 16 at the Santa Monica Public Library inside the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium located at 601 Santa Monica Boulevard. Seating is open to the public and free.

Listeners should arrive promptly as seating is limited. Call Library Administration at (310) 458-8606 for disability services at least one week before the event. To obtain additional information about the event contact the Santa Monica Public Library at (310) 458-8600.
