Pascal Le Boeuf’s “Ritual Being”

Aug 9, Friday - 6:30pm
Hammer4 Stage

Described as “sleek, new” and “hyper-fluent” by The New York Times, Pascal Le Boeuf is a Grammy Award-nominated composer, jazz pianist, and electronic artist whose works range from modern improvised music to hybridizing notation-based chamber music with production-based technology.

As a keyboardist, Pascal has played as support for D’Angelo’s Black Messiah tour and Clean Bandit’s Rather Be tour with Australian pop artist Meg Mac. He actively performs with Le Boeuf Brothers, saxophonist Jeff Coffin, jazz vocalist Allan Harris and his piano trio Pascal’s Triangle.

The Le Boeuf brothers, who play in a quintet, have been praised by The New Yorker for “clearing their own path, mixing the solid swing of the jazz tradition with hip-hop, indie rock, and the complex techniques of classical modernism”. 

Pascal’s most recent awards include a 2023 Grammy Award nomination for Best Instrumental Composition, a 2023 Guggenheim Fellowship, a 2020 Copland House Residency Award, and various Independent Music Awards in jazz, eclectic, electronic and music video categories. Pascal has  received commissions and grants from the NEA, New World Symphony, Nu Deco Ensemble, the Lake George Music Festival, Lincoln Center Stage, Chamber Music America, New Music USA, and ASCAP. He composed music for the 2008 Emmy Award-winning movie King Lines, and won first place in the 2008 International Songwriting Competition.

Pascal is currently an Assistant Professor of the Practice of Music and Technology at the Vanderbilt University Blair School of Music, and a Harold W. Dodds Honorific Fellow and PhD candidate in Music Composition at Princeton University.
