Anne H. Goldberg blurs the definitions of music and dance as a composer, choreographer, and performer. Founder and artistic director of the Synthesis Aesthetics Project, a collaborative between musicians, dancers, and media artists, Anne has produced, composed, choreographed and directed a variety of productions, most recently her evening length production of “Crude Civility,” developed at her Emerging-Artist-in-Residence at The Field. In addition to Synthesis, Anne co-founded the Tempus Continuum Ensemble and is a member of the Reform@ trio, touring the east coast and internationally. Anne’s music has been premiered and performed internationally by ensembles such as the Boston New Music Institute, the Novatrio, and at the Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice at New England Conservatory. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wellesley College and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and received her M.M. of Classical Composition at Manhattan School of Music under Dr. Marjorie Merryman. She is currently a D.M.A. candidate at MSM under Dr. Reiko Füting.
True to SICPP’s penchant for invitation, as the hours passed, the music seemed to become more ruminative, more beguiling. The marathon closed with a meditation: John Cage’s “Ryoanji,’’ implacably sparse tolling drums (Kolega), an oboist (Anne Goldberg) trading bent-note aphorisms with her own prerecorded shadow, the Iditarod drifting off into the predawn. --Michael Guerrieri, Boston Globe
