Carla Kihlstedt
violin and voice

Carla Kihlstedt has played the violin for most of her years on this planet. It is the vehicle that has brought her through many approaches to music-making from her beginnings in the classical world, through various music schools — Peabody Institute, Oberlin and San Francisco Conservatories — and on to her present hydra-headed musical life. She is a composer, an improviser, a singer, and a member of several ongoing projects, including 2 Foot Yard, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tin Hat, The Book of Knots, and Causing A Tiger, each of which has its own very particular and distinct logic. She has written scores for dance and theater companies (inkBoat, The Joe Goode Performance Group, Flyaway Productions), and on her new label, 12 Cups, has just released a cd of several such scores written with Matthias Bossi and Dan Rathbun (Ravish and Other Tales for the Stage).

In 2009, Carla will put several new recordings into the world: a new Minamo cd (Tzadik), debut cds of Cosa Brava, Causing a Tiger, Necessary Monsters, and Lisa Bielawa's Double Violin Concerto. Thanks to a generous grant from the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, she will also be working on a new piece for the ROVA Saxophone Quartet.

[CD Review] American Record Guide reviews Lisa Bielawa: In Media Res
Prix de Rome recipient Lisa Bielawa (b. 1968, daughter of composer Herbert) has recently been composer in residence with Gil Rose's Boston Modern Orchestra Project (2006-09). Ms. Bielawa (brought up in San Francisco but now living in Manhattan) is a Yale graduate, but her degrees are in literature and critical studies; she is also a performing soprano, making for an interesting and quite striking list of accomplishments. This collection documents the product of the three Boston seasons and includes some earlier music.

[Concert Review] With Orchestral Offerings, Festival Passes a Milestone
The MATA Festival is celebrating its 10th season, partly by showing off how far it has come since its early days as Music at the Anthology, a new-music series resident at the Anthology Film Archives. Since the Anthology days the festival has traveled a circuit of churches and small halls, but for the last couple of years it has been ensconced at the Brooklyn Lyceum, an old public bath converted into a concert hall.
