Aurél Holló is most notable for his wide breadth of performances with the internationally acclaimed Hungarian percussion ensemble Amadinda, an ensemble hailed by The Guardian as “among the most dazzling percussionists you might hear this side of Bali.”
Holló helped found the ensemble in 1984 in Budapest and has actively contributed as a composer and performer throughout their years of success. As a member of Amadinda, he was awarded the Order of Merit of the Hungarian Republic (1997), in addition to other national Hungarian awards.
Among Holló’s many musical influences include the great avant-garde Hungarian composer, György Ligeti, as well as Balinese Gamelan, a very rhythmic and percussive music with a heavy emphasis on repeated, interlocking patterns called kotekan by idiophones and gong chimes.
These influences in timbre and rhythm are especially present in Fast Lane. Fast Lane was commissioned by Escape Ten in 2016 with funding provided by the Bruce Carver Multicultural Arts Grant awarded by the School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech.
