Christine Bard Composer/percussionist Christine Bard has been recording bird choruses in
the wild, playing with a Cuban Orisha singer, and studying the call and response form of the 'coro'. She keeps her ear to the ground for the rhythms of speech in utterance, both human and avian. These explorations reflect her obsession with rhythm and a belief that the natural world and the humans have mimicked one another from the dawn of time.
Bard has performed her own music in concert in Europe and in the USA, including NYC downtown venues and Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park.Her solo percussion scores for such choreographers as Nancy Zendora, Wendy Osserman and Hope Clark have toured festivals in Korea, Brazil, USA, Canada and Russia. Christine has also performed and recorded with Marc Ribot, Makigami Koichi, James Pugliese, John Zorn, Eyvind Kang, Anthony Coleman, Elaine Kaplinsky, The Harry Partch Ensemble, the Downtown Ensemble, Bang On A Can All-stars, the Microtonal Orchestra and others. Her own groups include Easside Percussion (on Avant) and the post-ambient electronics group, ELX.
