Moller, Polly

Polly Moller (b. 1967)

Polly Moller is a composer, performer and improviser based in Oakland, California, USA. The composing bug bit her in 1995, after she earned degrees in flute performance and twentieth-century performance practice from San Francisco State University and UC Santa Cruz. Since then her pieces have been performed and published nationally and internationally, and she has been awarded grants by the American Composers Forum Subito program, the American Composers Forum Encore Program, the American Composers Forum Community Partners program, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. Equally at home in the worlds of free improvisation, composition, and rock, she is a member of Ghost in the House and Reconnaissance Fly (and their alter ego, the Cardiacs tribute band ReCardiacs Fly). She is a Sequenza21 contributing editor and presents DJ Post-Pink's Innerworld on KUSF in Exile/San Francisco Community Radio.
