The Salt Lake Electric Ensemble (SLEE) formed in 2009 with a dual purpose: to perform and record Terry Riley’s 1964 masterwork In C, and to explore music making with the most powerful and intriguing musical instrument of our time: the computer.  SLEE’s 2010 recording of In C, notable for being the first rendition to primarily use electronic instruments, was lauded by critics and audiences throughout the world. 

SLEE is a collective that often shifts personnel and instrumentation from project to project and has ranged from 6-9 members. The ensemble’s body of work includes new recordings and performances of music from the essential composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, along with original compositions and improvisations.
