Marina Rosenfeld on Afternoon New Music

Monday, September 26, 2016 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Tune in to hear an exclusive in-studio interview with Marina Rosenfeld starting at 3:0 PM. She will be performing with the great Morton Subotnick at 8:00 PM on Tuesday, September 27th at ISSUE Project Room.

Pioneering experimental composer Morton Subotnick premieres a new collaboration with Berlin-based video artist, Lillevan. Their light and sound duet combines analog recordings, electronic patches, and live performance on a hybrid Buchla 200e/Ableton “instrument” with live video animation. The duo of composer and turntable artist Marina Rosenfield and analog synth innovator Ben Vida reprise their improvisational collaboration first presented during Vida’s 2013 ISSUE residency.

Marina Rosenfeld is a New York-based artist and composer. She works at the intersection of modern composition, performance and installation, often occupying monumental sites with live and recorded sound and deploying large groups of performers as choirs, orchestras and other hybrid ensembles. She has also performed as a pianist and, especially, as an experimental turntablist since the late '90s, working with an ever-expanding palette of hand-crafted dub plates, alongside collaborators from Christian Marclay to Warrior Queen to Ralph Lemon to the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Rosenfeld’s work has been presented at numerous institutions, festivals, and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum (including Whitney Biennials 2002 and 2008), the Liverpool and PERFORMA biennials, the Holland Festival, Tate Modern, the Secession, the Park Avenue Armory, Wien Modern, and most recently House of Gaga in Mexico City and the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art. She is a faculty member of the MFA program at Bard College, where she co-chairs the department of Music/Sound.
