Biography

Born 1951 in Cape Town, Michael Blake moved to London in 1977, and returned to South Africa in 1998, establishing the ISCM South Africa and Sterkfontein Composers Meeting. 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, in recent years exploring a postmodern aesthetic in various different styles. In recent years he has had commissions and performances at Festival d’Automne à Paris, Ars Musica Belgium, World Music Days Slovenia, as well as in New York, Mexico City, Tokyo, Vienna, Milan, Cologne, Stockholm, Vilnius, etc. His music has been recorded on a dozen CDs; his complete cello music is due out on Wergo shortly. In South Africa he is honorary professor in experimental music at Africa Open Institute, Stellenbosch.
