About Marc Farre

Singer/songwriter Marc Farre was born in France, but immigrated to the U.S., where he managed the Merce Cunningham Dance Company during the 1980s and worked with avant-garde classical composer John Cage. (He earned album credits for translating liner notes on albums of music by Cage and other classical artists during the 1990s.) He composed a dozen scores for modern dance in the '80s and '90s. His work with Cage brought him into contact with MODE, a classical record label, which signed him to its AVANT imprint (notwithstanding his desire to record his own pop/rock songs) and released his debut EP, Margaret Maybe, in 1994. The disc gained little notice, however, and Farre sought his release from the label, going on to issue his subsequent recordings himself on his own All Weather label. The first of these was his debut full-length album, Unsafe Songs, released in 1998. Man on the Sun followed in September 2000. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he released a benefit single, "Prayer Flags," to radio only. In 2003, he scored the documentary film He Who Is Blessed for public television. His third full-length CD, Secret Symphony, was released on June 23, 2008. ~ William Ruhlmann
