Marina Rosenfeld > Teenage Lontano

Music Nov 21, 2011 No Comments

“While still a student at CalArts (Los Angeles) in 1993, Marina Rosenfeld first created the Sheer Frost Orchestra, a graphically scored musical performance realized by 17 women on floor-bound electric guitars, deploying nail-polish bottles as sensitive sound-producing implements. This performance, always created in situ with the collaboration of local performers, has been widely produced since then, most recently at the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2009. Other performed works include 2008’s Teenage Lontano, Rosenfeld’s “cover version” of Gyorgy Ligeti’s 1967 orchestral work Lontano, for 34-voice teenaged choir and suspended speaker installation. Teenage Lontano was premiered in the vast Drill Hall space of the Park Avenue Armory in New York as part of the Whitney Biennial 2008. The work had its European premiere in Amsterdam in June 2009 as a co-production of the Holland Festival and Stedelijk Museum and its third and fourth productions in 2010-11 in Oslo for Ultima Festival and Perth, Australia for Tura New Music…” Marina
