ERIKA BELL, GRANTS MANAGER
Erika Bell is a Los Angeles–based composer drawn to intuition, preference and the personal. The combination of these things filtered through her compositional process often result in works that are spacious and melancholy. Her work is lightly focused on textural construction, irregular ensemble groupings, experimentation and a structure-based approach. Bell has had work performed at the Göteborg Art Sounds Festival (Sweden), Yale’s Norfolk New Music Concert (Connecticut), Washington St. Gallery (Massachusetts)—in Los Angeles—the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Zebulon, The Dog Star Festival, Automata, the wulf., Human Resources and more. In addition to composing, Erika Bell performs in her own singer-songwriter project, Erika Bell; the lo-fi, minimal, post-punk band, Picky Bunches; writes grants for Monday Evening Concerts; and is a board member of The Dog Star Orchestra.
