Hailing from Cincinnati, Erich Kory has played the cello for over half a century. He grew up on Classical music and became one of the top free-lancers in New York City through the ‘80s, playing on Broadway and all the well-known concert venues. Associations including Conductors: Leonard Bernstein, James Levine, Roger Norrington, Andre Previn, Julius Rudel, Trevor Pennock, Dennis Russell Davies & Robert Shaw; Singers: Freidrica von Stade, Placedo Domingo, Kathleen Battle & Joan Sutherland, as well as most of the top instrumentalists, gave him a profound knowledge of music and interpretation.
In 1986 he left his New York career to explore other forms of music, having new associations including: Sting, Tony Bennett, Bemshi, Elisabeth von Trapp, Liza Minelli, Smokey Robinson, The Moody Blues, Steve Martin, Johnny Mathis, Robert Goulet, Lyle Mays and Astor Piazzola.
For the last 30 years he has been improvising and writing music for film, dance, theater and multi-media. In the ‘90s Mr. Kory toured throughout Europe performing solo concerts based on his work implemented by an array of digital effects and looping. This style of creation has become his hallmark.
Erich has produced 4 solo albums, and has participated on hundreds of collaborative albums. He now lives on a self-sustaining farm called Liberterre in rural Quebec with his wife AnneBruce Falconer. He continues to record there for a wide variety of projects via the internet.
