Ilya Ziblat

Ilya Ziblat is a composer-improviser, a bass player, and a researcher. His works are hybrids of improvisation, notation, and interactive live-electronics systems. The liveness of the encounters staged in his work invites audiences to witness the interaction between emergent situations and musical structures. After studying composition and contrabass in Tel-Aviv University and in the Royal Conservatory, The Hague, Ilya obtained a PhD from Leiden University with his thesis Between Freedom and Fixity: Artistic Reflections on Composition and Improvisation.
