Biography

Jane Rigler, flutist, composer, educator and producer is known for her innovations in new flute performance, techniques and unique musical vocabulary.

As a flutist she is a featured performer in contemporary music festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe as a soloist as well as within chamber ensembles (Ensemble Plural, Either/Or, Ne(x)tworks, Ensemble Sospeso, Anthony Braxton 12tet, etc.). Besides premiering works written especially for her, Jane’s own compositions include solo acoustic pieces inspired by language to complex interactive electronic works that pay homage to communities, language and the sounds of the environment, whether they be the natural world, animals or people and machines. Jane is a Deep Listening© Certificate holder. She travels internationally and locally offering exploratory listening workshops for all people.

After receiving a B.M. (Northwestern University) and then pursuing flute studies in various parts of Europe and North America, she gained her M.A. and Ph.D. (UC San Diego) completing The Vocalization of the Flute, a book demonstrating both new and ancient methods of singing-while-playing the flute. Her expertise has led to performances in contemporary operas, experimental theater and dance events as well as other interactive electronic festivals.

Her compositions are sought after by other flutists and have been performed in South Korea, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, and in concert halls and universities throughout the U.S. Her work While you sleep is a documentation CD that includes a sound installation made at the Chihan’an Art Project residency in Ohito, Japan in 2013.

Jane organizes and collaborates on events such as the Peak FreQuency Creative Arts Festival/Series (in Colorado Springs), the Relay~NYC! held at MoMA (in NYC), the Spontaneous Music Festival and has received support for her works from the Brooklyn Arts Council, Meet the Composer—Global Connections, Harvestworks Studios, Art Omi, UCROSS, Hambidge, and RPI’s Create @ iEar Studios.

When not performing, she teaches computer music, sound art, and performance art classes, flute, composition, 20th-21st century music history and upper division interdisciplinary courses in the Music Program within the Visual and Performing Arts Department at UCCS (University of Colorado at Colorado Springs). She has been instrumental in bringing several world-renowned guests artists/composer/performers/sound artists to the campus: Pauline Oliveros, Philip Blackburn, Pamela Z, Miya Masaoka, Pamela Madsen, amongst others.
