Artist Biographies:

"Dean Rosenthal is an American composer of contemporary and experimental music, field recordings, digital pastiche, sound collage, and installations; performer, writer on music, and theorist; his instrumental music has been described as "thorny" and "modernist" (The New Yorker) and "original" (The New York Times). His works are performed, broadcast, choreographed, and installed internationally, primarily in North America and Europe at venues such as Ohrenhoch der Geräuschladen, Center for Collaborative Arts and Media at Yale, Spectrum, The Wulf, Electronic Music Foundation, Incubator Arts Project, Symphony Space, at many universities and art schools, and outdoors, in situ, over 40 times, for Stones/Water/Time/Breath. His writings have been published in The Open Space Magazine, The Ear Reader, Musicworks, and other prominent contemporary publications. More recently he worked closely with Guggenheim Fellow David Parker's dance company The Bang Group, utilizing contemporary dance to express his instrumental music; this music was heard in dozens of performances from the Brooklyn Museum to hallowed dance center Jacob's Pillow to the Claquettes Club in Liege, Belgium. A recent commission from the Oral History of American Music collection at Yale was first heard in January 2020. Since 2012, he has made his home on Martha's Vineyard, where he composed his ongoing international performance piece Stones/Water/Time/Breath which in 2016 was given a 10 city, 3 country performance as part of the international Make Music Day festival, inaugurating an annual event now in its 5th year. Stones/Water/Time/Breath piece was released by Edition Wandelweiser, documenting five live performances from Newfoundland to Brooklyn to New York to Wilbraham, Massachusetts, the composer's hometown."

"Originally from Long Island, trombonist William Lang is an active performer, improviser, and teacher based in New York City. He can be found playing in all settings and style, from the avant-garde and classical to Broadway and indie chamber pop. He has given his signature unaccompanied recitals throughout the United States, played concertos in both America and Europe, and has also recorded with such artists as Philip Glass, David Bryne, St. Vincent, and Jonsi (of Sigur Ros.) Intensely passionate for chamber music, he regularly performs alongside his groundbreaking ensembles loadbang (an original and unique group of musicians interested in cutting edge music) and the Guidonian Hand (a trombone quartet dedicated to breaking boundaries within the brass community.) The New York Times has called his playing "fiercely, virtuosic" and the Boston Globe has hailed him for his "superb performance" in past solo works."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Dean Rosenthal's Stones/Water/Time/Breath is experimental music in which a participant or participants choose any body of water and perform a set of actions designed to create a musical performance. It was born from an impromptu performance by the composer in May 2012 on Martha's Vineyard that was later written down as a set of performance steps that can be performed by everyone. Edition Wandelweiser has recently released a recording of several live performances. Click here to listen

Since 2012, Stones/Water/Time/Breath has been given over 40 performances in a wide variety of locales internationally, taught in universities, been the subject of a multimedia installation in Wroclaw, Poland, and published with video performances and commentary in online publications in France and Canada. Stones/Water/Time/Breath was a subject of two article publications that have received wide international recognition and has been discussed in international keynotes. The text has been translated into four languages, French, Spanish, German and Polish, and the composer has given numerous public talks about the piece.

In 2015, a "pocket card" that is about the size of a postcard that participants can take with them to their performances, supported in part by a grant from the Martha's Vineyard Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

On June 21st, 2016, participants in 11 cities and towns in 3 countries performed Stones/Water/Time/Breath as part of the international Make Music Day celebration. These performances inaugurated an annual event given across the United States and internationally, currently in the fifth year."-Dean Rosenthal website
