Guitarist, bassist and composer, Eric Vogler combines a broad interest in African-American and European lineages of art music with an inherent geekiness to produce a unique personal musical language. Eric studied as a youth with Los Angeles guitarists Pete Snell and G. G. Bobues. At UC Berkeley, encounters with pianist Bevan Manson and saxohponist Steve Coleman suggested further avenues for expressions of his interests through music. Besides the above influences, Eric's forays into algorithmically generated music have created an ongoing dialogue in his understanding of musical form and structure. Eric performs regularly in the Bay Area (and occasionally elsewhere) on both instruments. Notable collaborators include Howard Wiley, Mitch Marcus, Vidya, Ambrose Akinmusire, Joshi Marshall, Sam Ospovat, Bryan Bowman, Geechi Taylor, and many more. Current projects that perform Eric's music are Bleeding Vector, Eric's longstanding duo with singer Lorin Benedict; The Holly Martins, Bleeding Vector plus saxophonist extrodinaire Kasey "Noody" Knudsen; and the quintet, Blenderhead.
