About this Event

Madison Greenstone performs Silent Paradox of Expression, a new concert-length extension of their exstatic resonances practice of playing the clarinet.

Madison Greenstone (b.1992, Los Angeles, Calif.) is a clarinetist, composer, and writer based in Brooklyn. Greenstone’s solo performance practice, exstatic resonances, explores intense instrumental expressivities that arise when the clarinet is treated as a site of indeterminacy and generative instability. Exstatic resonances draw on ongoing studies in phenomenology, self-generative music, acoustics, and the Jewish-mystical emanations of ruach.

Greenstone performs widely as a soloist and chamber musician. As a soloist, they have presented their work at KM28, Berlin; the Vigeland Mausoleum, Oslo; Night of Surprise, Cologne; Issue Project Room, New York; Non Event, Boston, and the Merce Cunningham Centennial Night of 100 Solos, Los Angeles. As a chamber and orchestral musician, they have performed at the New York Philharmonic; PS21, Chatham; KKL Luzern; Hamburg Elbphilharmonie; Darmstadt Ferienkurse; Indexical, Santa Cruz; Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angles; and Miller Theater, New York. They have held residencies at Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Chicago, and the University of Pennsylvania.

Their debut solo album, Resonance Studies in Ecstatic Consciousness (Relative Pitch Records), was released in 2022. Greenstone can also be heard on labels such as Wandelweiser Editions, Another Timbre, TAK Editions, Pleasure of the Text Records, New Focus Recordings, Impakt Collective, and upcoming on Dinzu Artefacts.

Greenstone is the clarinetist of TAK Ensemble, and a founding member of the [Switch~ Ensemble]. Trained in contemporary classical performance, they have learned greatly from the mentorship of Anthony Burr and Charles Curtis at UC San Diego.

Since 2010, the Graham Foundation has partnered with Lampo to produce an international performance series held at the Madlener House. Lampo, founded in 1997, is a nonprofit organization for experimental music and intermedia projects.
