He has composed music for dance, mixed-media installations, and film. His music is a combination of (but not limited to) rock and roll language, indigenous rhythms from Africa, Brazil, and Colombia, and musique concrete. Becker’s CD Saints & Devils (2006) is a suite of 10 tracks inspired by songs, stories and icons of the deep South. Composed, recorded, and mixed by Becker and mastered less than two weeks before Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, Saints & Devils includes performances by musicians from New York City and New Orleans. He has received grants from Meet The Composer, the American Music Center and the Louisiana Division of the Arts. More info at myspace.com/beckermusic
