Biography

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, refined timbres and noise. She composes for others and performs with her own band, taking her music on a path through festivals, factories, clubs, art spaces, and concert halls. She was a 2012 fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, and a recent recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts prestigious “Grants to Artists” award. Gosfield’s newly released Tzadik CD, titled “Almost Truths and Open Deceptions” features a piece for piano and broken shortwave radio, a cello concerto, a 5-minute blast by her band, and music inspired by baseball and warped 78‘s. Her music has been performed worldwide at Warsaw Autumn, the Bang on a Can Marathon, MATA, MaerzMusik, ISCM, the Venice Biennale, OtherMinds Festival, Lincoln Center, and The Kitchen. Her recent work includes compositions inspired by factory environments, coded messages transmitted to the French resistance in World War II, and her grandparents’ immigrant experiences in New York City during the industrial revolution. Her discography includes four solo releases on the Tzadik label, and she writes frequently on the compositional process for the New York Times’ series “The Score”.
