WENDY EISENBERG is an improviser and composer who performs primarily on guitar, banjo, voice and electronics. Her work is about the ways that visual and sociological space inform the musical signs of time and frequency. Her compositions and instrumental technique are developed from her involvement with the traditions of free jazz, punk, heavy metal, avant-garde composition and art songs. She plays in the band Birthing Hips and has multiple solo projects as well, some fully improvised, some modern guitar and banjo composition, and songs.
She has performed her own work at The Stone, Twins Jazz, Blues Alley, the Middle East, Harvard and MIT Radio stations, Hampshire College, the Hartt School of Music, Skidmore College, Bard, Jordan Hall at NEC, Kilbourne Hall at Eastman, and several festivals including X-fest and the Rochester International Jazz Fest.
She completed a Master of Music in Contemporary Improvisation with a focus on Guitar and Composition at the New England Conservatory, and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Guitar from The Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Herwritings on music will be accessible in the newest edition of John Zorn’s Arcana: Musicians on Music series, and her poetry can be found on Canto Magazine and, conceptually, on her twitter (@eisenbergsounds).
