Leila Bordreuil

Leila Bordreuil

Leila Bordreuil is a Brooklyn-based cellist, composer, and sound artist from France. Her cello improvisations challenge conventional practice, producing textural variations from a collage of phantom overtones and pitched utterances. Through a unique and original vocabulary of extended techniques, preparations, and imaginative amplification methods, she transforms her instrument into an abstract resonant body. Her composed works draw from a similar texture-based musical aesthetic while developing relationships between sound and space. In her site-specific electro-acoustic compositions, architecture is the foundation of the piece and musicality arises from an organized spacialization of sound.

Since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, Leila has maintained an active concert schedule playing with Marina Rosenfeld, Anthony Coleman, Tom Chiu (Flux Quartet), Chris Corsano, Eli Keszler, Richard Teitlebaum (Musica Elettronica Viva), Weasel Walter, Richard Garet, Susan Alcorn, Tamio Shiraishi, Guillermo Gregorio and Michael Foster, among many others. She has performed at the Whitney Museum, Roulette, Issue Project Room, The Kitchen, and the Performa Biennale.
