Lukas Ligeti is a percussionist/composer who made his Fresh Sound debut performance in a house concert in 2011, playing solo marimba lumina, an instrument designed by the late Don Buchla.
Ligeti recently relocated from NYC to Southern California to serve on the faculty of UC Irvine. He creates music unlike any other — a kaleidoscopic mix of African, post-minimal, European classical, and avant-jazz influences. Marimba virtuoso Ji Hye Jung also performs Ligeti's "Thinking Songs", a tour de force that pushes the instrument into new directions, and Ligeti's group Notebook performs works combining composition, improvisation, and unexpected moments of sheer beauty.
