Full program biography
Allison Loggins-Hull is a flutist, composer, and producer whose work defies classification. She has been associated with acts across the spectrum of popular and classical music including Flutronix, LA Phil, Lizzo, Imani Winds, and Alarm Will Sound. Her music is resonant with social and political themes of the current moment, encompassing motherhood, Blackness, and cultural identity.
During the 2021-22 season Allison joins the legendary Bang on a Can All-Stars for their annual People’s Commissioning Fund concert. Her compositions will be performed by the LA Phil and San Francisco Symphony, and with Flutronix she premieres two projects: Black Being at the Arts Club of Chicago, and Discourse with Carolina Performing Arts. In February, Allison performs works by herself and others at Cal Performances in Berkeley, for Alicia Hall Moran and Jason Moran’s vaunted Two Wings: The Music of Black Migration.
In 2021 the New Jersey Symphony premiered Can You See? a new piece for chamber ensemble commissioned by the orchestra and the Newark Museum of Art. In New York City, the long-awaited premiere of Diametrically Composed was held at Bryant Park. For this collaborative initiative Allison brought together fellow composers/mothers Alicia Hall Moran, Sarah Kirkland Snider, and Jessica Meyer to write pieces for Allison, Moran, and pianist, Gabriela Martinez.
Continuing her work in film, Allison composed the score for “Bring Them Back,” a 2019 award-winning documentary about the legendary dancer Maurice Hines directed by Jon Carluccio and executive produced by Debbie Allen.
In 2009 she and Nathalie Joachim co-founded the critically acclaimed duo Flutronix, which was praised by The Wall Street Journal for being able “to redefine the instrument.” Similarly, MTV Iggy recognized Flutronix for “redefining the flute and modernizing its sound by hauling it squarely into the world of popular music.”
Allison has performed at The Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Orchestra Hall (Chicago), World Cafe Live, and several other major venues and festivals around the world. She has performed or recorded with a wide-range of artists including the International Contemporary Ensemble, Imani Winds, Lizzo, and others. With Flutronix, she has released two full studio albums (Flutronix and 2.0), a live album (Live From the Attucks Theatre), an EP (City of Breath) and is signed to Village Again Records in Japan. As a member of The Re-Collective Orchestra, Allison was co-principal flutist on the soundtrack to Disney’s 2019 remake of “The Lion King,” working closely with Hans Zimmer. On the small screen, she has been featured in an internationally broadcast ESPN Super Bowl commercial, the 62nd annual GRAMMYs Award Show and the Black Girls Rock! Awards Show.
Allison has composed for Flutronix, Julia Bullock and others and has been commissioned by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Carolina Performing Arts, Alarm Will Sound and The Library of Congress. She was a co-producer of Nathalie Joachim’s celebrated album “Fanm d’Ayiti,” which was nominated for a 2020 GRAMMY for Best World Music Album. In support of her work, Allison has been awarded grants from New Music USA, and a fellowship at The Hermitage Artist Retreat in Englewood, Florida.
Allison has held faculty positions at The Juilliard School, The John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University, SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music and lives with her family in Montclair, New Jersey.
