For more than 40 years, clarinetist/composer Eric Mandat has been on the leading edge of clarinet extended techniques explorations, particularly multiphonics, microtones, and timbral modulations. Through his work with extended techniques, Eric has developed a deeply personal artistic expression as a performer and composer, and he is recognized worldwide as one of the foremost authorities on clarinet extended techniques.

Eric tours regularly as a concert soloist, performing his works throughout the world. He was a member of the Chicago Symphony’s MusicNOW ensemble for 15 seasons, and he performs regularly in solo and small group improvisation contexts.

Eric’s solo compositions have become staples in the repertoire of adventurous clarinetists throughout the world. He has received numerous awards and honors for his innovative solo and chamber music works featuring clarinet, including a 2021 Illinois Arts Council Fellowship for Composition, and he has been awarded more than 20 artist residencies at the Ragdale Foundation and at Brush Creek Center for the Arts.

Celebrating his 41st year at the Southern Illinois University School of Music, Eric currently serves as Visiting Professor of Clarinet and Distinguished Scholar. In 1999 he received the SIU Outstanding Scholar Award, the university’s highest honor for research/creative work.
