Rashad Becker (SY/DE) is a composer and musician. His compositions are multilayered narratives populated by an ensemble of sonic entities, often with a tragic-comical touch. Recent works include the cycle ‘Traditional Music Of Notional Species’ released across two volumes on PAN, and a multi-part work called ‘Based On A True Story‘ that derives scores from historical occurrences in a sort of ‘sonic staging’. He is currently commissioned by New York-based ensemble Alarm Will Sound and Berlin string ensemble Kaleidoskop. Becker functions predominantly as a solo artist but is a member of Moleglove.
