˚˚Who We Are

Ensemble f0 was founded in 2011 and is comprised of Sara Perez (voice), Laura Cocks (flute), Dustin Chung (clarinet), and Sean Dowgray (percussion). We met as students of the Oberlin College and Conservatory and bonded over a shared interest in contemporary music. As individuals and as an ensemble we are dedicated to working with today's composers and performing the constantly growing repertoire of today.

Lewis Nielson: Opera Amoris (fl, clar, perc, vox) *

Eugene Kim: zum schluss in der frühe (fl, perc, vox) * 

David Bird: veil//akousmatikoi (afl, vox, elec) *
