Architectural review of the chapel at the Korean Church of Boston

MALCOLM GOLDSTEIN, as composer/violinist, has been active in the presentation of new music and dance since the early 1960's, in New York City, as co-founder of the Tone Roads Ensemble and as participant in the Judson Dance Theater, the New York Festival of the Avant Garde and the Experimental Intermedia Foundation. Since then he has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, presenting solo violin concerts and appearing as soloist with new music and dance ensembles.

His "soundings" improvisations have received international acclaim for having "reinventing violin playing", extending the range of tonal/sound-texture possibilities of the instrument and revealing new dimensions of expressivity. Numerous composers – as diverse as John Cage and Ornette Coleman – have written music for him.

Since the mid-1960's Goldstein has integrated structured improvisation elements into his compositions, exploring the rich sound-textures of new performance techniques within a variety of instrumental and vocal frameworks. He has written extensively on improvisation and is the author of the book: Sounding the Full Circle.

VICTORIA SHEN at Café Fixe

Non-Event Presents
Our January Experimental Coffee House

VICTORIA SHEN

Café Fixe
1642 Beacon Street (Washington Square)
Brookline, MA
7 p.m. /$5

VICTORIA SHEN is a Somerville­-based multimedia artist and musician whose visual work is positioned at the intersection of art history, pop culture, and identity politics. Through a process of visual exaggeration and effacement, her video work holds up a mirror to the absurd side of images we consume. Shen's music heavily features analog modular synthesizers, contact microphones, and other hand­built electronics. Her approach to music is sculptural in both the shaping/texturing of audio waveforms and the design of the sound objects themselves. In addition to her solo work, she is also a member of the duo Trim.
