Anne La Berge's career as flautist/improviser/composer stretches across international and stylistic boundaries. Her most recent performances bring together the elements on which her international reputation is based: a ferocious and far-reaching virtuosity, a penchant for improvising delicately spun microtonal textures and melodies, and her wholly unique array of powerfully percussive flute effects, all combined with electronic processing. Many of her compositions involve her own participation, though she has produced works intended solely for other performers, usually involving guided improvisation and text. In addition to creating her own work she regularly performs in other artists' projects in a range of settings from modern chamber music to improvised electronic music.

She can be heard on labels including  Largo, Etcetera and Hat Art, in recordings both as soloist and as a member of Ensemble Modern and other groups. Her CD 'speak' was released in the summer of 2011 on New World Records. Her music is published by Frog Peak Music (US) and by Donemus (NL). She is the co-director, with her husband David Dramm, of the VOLSAP Foundation that supports projects for composed and improvised music.
