UC Berkeley's daring and accomplished ensemble-in-residence comprises contemporary music specialists from throughout the Bay Area, directed by new-music champion David Milnes. Praised by the New York Times as a "dream team of local musicians who embody a high point in the Bay Area's vibrant contemporary music scene," Eco Ensemble was founded in 2011 and in recent seasons has performed works by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Kaija Saariaho, and Martin Matalon, as well as chamber and electroacoustic works by UC Berkeley faculty members Edmund Campion, Franck Bedrossian, and Cindy Cox.
