Featured works: "Ne Songe Plus Ě? Fuir For Cello," "Earth For Trombone And Percussion," "Another Heavenly Day For E Flat Clarinet, Electric Guitar And Double Bass," "Negatives For 6 Players," and "Codeax I For 6 Players." "Barrett's work encompasses both composition and improvisation, ranging from chamber music to innovative uses of live electronics and collaborations with visual artists. Much of his work arises from close long-term collaborations, such as his association with Elision (since 1990) and the electronic duo Furt with Paul Obermayer (since 1986). His music is inspired by various art forms, especially the works of Samuel Beckett, the surrealist painter Roberto Matta and poet Paul Celan. His music has a complexity similar to that of composers like Michael Finnissy and Brian Ferneyhough. Richard Barrett was born in 1959 in Swansea (Wales), and currently lives in Amsterdam."
