GIDEST Seminar with Marina Rosenfeld

Friday, March 4, 2016 at 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

University Center, 411 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY

This seminar is a discussion of a pre-circulated paper. It can be found on the GIDEST site for attendees to read in advance.

Marina Rosenfeld presents "Surface Species - Playback and the Object."

Marina Rosenfeld is an artist and composer who lives and works in New York. Her works include compositions for choir, orchestra and complexes of loudspeakers; a series of conceptual electric-guitar orchestras (Sheer Frost Orchestra); and since 2008, a custom sound-system (P.A.) that she has composed for and deployed in monumental sites including New York’s Park Avenue Armory and Western Australia’s Midland Railway Workshops. Rosenfeld has also performed as an experimental turntablist since the late '90s, working with an ever-expanding palette of hand-crafted dub plates, alongside collaborators from Christian Marclay to Warrior Queen to Ralph Lemon, to the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. 

Rosenfeld’s work has been presented at numerous biennials, festivals, and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum (including Whitney Biennials 2002 and 2008), the Holland Festival, Tate Modern, the Secession, and Wien Modern, among many others.

This event is part of the bi-weekly GIDEST Seminars presented by the Graduate Institute of Design, Ethnography, & Social Thought at The New School.
