Ross Karre is a percussionist and temporal artist based in New York City. His primary focus is on combining media, including classical percussion performance, electronics, theater, moving image, visual art, and lighting design. He designs integrated, moving images that emerge from an aesthetic foundation in American experimental music as well as that of the European avant garde. He has collaborated as a producer/designer on the world’s largest scale productions at the Park Avenue Armory, Holland Festival, Ojai Festival, and Lincoln Center. Ross is a percussionist and the co-artistic director for the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE).
