Eden Rayz

Eden Rayz is a Boston-based composer, cellist, instrument designer, and extreme vocalist. Her subversive and immersive performances have served as healing spaces that transcend genre and subculture. 

Eden served as a 2023-2024 Artist-In-Residence at historic Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, where she was commissioned to compose, perform, and host a set of musical death awareness meditations and long-form ritual listening pieces. Eden created a new electroacoustic instrument called Argent and Sable from the cemetery’s former pipe organ. Her live album The Cemetery Tapes featuring Argent and Sable, amplified cello, extreme vocals, and percussionist Austin Birdy will be released independently in the summer of 2024.

As a session cellist, she has recorded and performed with bands including Moon Tooth, Third Eye Blind, Marrowfields, The Furies, Geni Skendo, Rachel Sumner, Cradle of Judah, and Wyclef Jean, and improvised on soundtracks like the 2023 Grammy-winning Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök. Her cello performances have been hailed as “terrifying” and “unbelievably special,” by metal reviewers. I Care If You Listen described her work as “...a musical world the listener has stumbled into, not just a representation of something happening in a concert hall.”

In May of 2022, she self-released her debut solo album Corpus Vice which blends death metal and contemporary art music. The album was written as functional music to aid listeners in processing climate grief. She serves as front person and cellist for death metal band Angel Grinder. Her solo flute works have been performed at Carnegie (Weill) Recital Hall and her chamber works have premiered at Musiikkitalo in Helsinki, Finland and in Cortona, Italy.

Eden holds a masters degree in composition and music theory from Boston Conservatory at Berklee. She has lectured on composition, notation, and string technique at universities including Berklee College of Music, Harvard University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and teaches students locally and internationally out of her private online lesson studio in Boston.
