Biography

Michael Blake (b. 1951, Cape Town) is largely self-taught as a composer; his work is associated with conceptual art and the beginning of an experimental music movement in South Africa in the 1970s. In 1976 he began a series of pieces based on African composition techniques, continuing more recently to explore a postmodern aesthetic in a range of different styles. After spending 20 years in London, he returned to South Africa in 1998, establishing the ISCM South Africa and Sterkfontein Composers Meeting. His music has been played on five continents, including recently at Festival d’Automne à Paris and Ars Musica Belgium, and a Wergo recording of his cello music with Friedrich Gauwerky and Daan Vandewalle was released in April 2018. He currently divides his time between his home, in France, and South Africa where he is Honorary Professor at Africa Open Institute, Stellenbosch University.
