Annie Gosfield, whom the BBC called “A one woman Hadron collider, the queen of the detuned industrial noise” works on the boundaries between notated and improvised music, electronic and acoustic sounds.
Gosfield was a 2012 fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, and a recent recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts “Grants to Artists” award. Gosfield’s newly released *Almost Truths and Open Deceptions* features a piece for piano and broken shortwave radio, and music inspired by baseball and warped 78’s.
Her music has been performed worldwide at Warsaw Autumn, Bang on a Can, MATA, MaerzMusik, Venice Biennale, and Lincoln Center. Recent work includes compositions inspired by factory environments, jammed WWII radio signals, and her grandparents’ immigrant experiences.
Annie has released four albums, and she writes on the compositional process for the New York Times’ series “The Score.” She held the Darius Milhaud chair of composition at Mills College, and has taught at Princeton and California Institute of the Arts.
