Born in Toronto in 1985, Alec Hall lives in New York City, where he works on the nature of acoustic materials in the post-Avant-Garde musical landscape. Through samples and field recordings, he engages non-musical subjects within an extensive body of work that focuses on labor conditions in China, environmental destruction in Canada, state violence in America, animal cognition, (un)wellness, and beyond. Hall’s music has been premiered by some of the most preeminent ensembles and soloists throughout the world, among them his own collective, Qubit, which produced his opera, The House of Influence in 2018. He has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fromm commission, and the 2019 Jules Léger Prize.
