MALCOLM GOLDSTEIN
A composer, violinist, and improviser, Malcolm Goldstein
has been active in the presentation of new music and
dance since the early 1960s, when he participated in the
Tone Roads Ensemble, Judson Dance Theater and
Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York City.
Though trained as a classical violinist, his music became
focused on open improvisation (Soundings received acclaim
for having "re-invented violin playing") and structured
improvisation-composition. Numerous composers, as diverse
as John Cage and Ornette Coleman, have written music for
him. Since the late 1970s he has toured extensively throughout
North America, Europe and Japan, where he has presented
concerts of his music at several New Music America festivals,
the Acustica International Festival (West German Radio,
Cologne), and as director of the Ensemble for New Music of
the Frankfurt Hessischer Rundfunk.
