Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II

Rashad Becker

Rashad Becker is a composer and musician residing in Berlin.

His compositions are multilayered narratives populated by an ensemble of sonic entities,
some smug, some shy, some agitators, others ready to surrender. Often there’s a tragic-
comical touch, like a cartoon version of what could be a requiem from a dream (or just as
much a fertility dance from another dimension).

Recent works include the cycle Traditional Music Of Notional Species released across
two volumes on PAN, and the multi-part work Based On A True Story that derives
scores from historical occurrences in a sort of ‘sonic staging’. In this context, he is currently
commissioned by New York-based ensemble Alarm Will Sound and Berlin string ensemble
Kaleidoskop.

Rashad is mainly active as a solo artist but finds himself in a series of permanent
collaborations alongside Eli Keszler, Moritz von Oswald and as a member of the formation
Moleglove. Other and more sporadic collaborators have been Okkyung Lee, Andre Vida,
Ashley Paul, and Valerio Tricoli.
