Events | Udo Moll & Anna McCarthy

Los Angeles | June 25, 2015 | 7:30 PM

The German composer and trumpet player Udo Moll will present a preliminary version of his latest electro-acoustic solo performance

ENIAC Girls.

In an intriguingly abstract way it tells some of the stories around the early days of computer development in the U.S., focusing mainly on the group of young women that programmed the ENIAC computer between 1946 and 1948. ENIAC was the first fully functional computer based on purely electronic components. Without any precedence to their task, the "ENIAC girls" had to invent the basics of computer programming themselves. Mixing composed and improvised parts, acoustic trumpet playing and electronic music, Udo Moll creates a captivating concert installation.

Udo Moll's initial musical socialization process took place in the brass orchestra of the city of Uhingen. He studied empirical cultural sciences, musicology, romanistic and new German literature at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen. Furthermore, he studied the jazz trumpet with Manfred Schoof and composition with Johannes Fritsch at the Music Academy Cologne.
Udo Moll works as a freelance composer, trumpeter and in the field of electronic music.
