Christian Wolff (1934) studied piano with Grete Sultan and, briefly, composition with John Cage. Mostly he is self-taught as a composer. He has also been active as an improviser, with, among others, Takehisa Kosugi, Christian Marclay, Ikue Mori, Eddie Prevost, Keith Rowe, and Steve Lacy. He was part of the so-called New York School (with Cage, Feldman, David Tudor and Earle Brown), and close to Frederic Rzewski and Cornelius Cardew. He was long active with Merce Cunningham and his dance company. His music currently some 270 items, is published by C. F. Peters and much of it is recorded on over 70 CDs.
He has taught at Harvard, in Classics (Greek and Latin), and at Dartmouth, in the Classics, Comparative Literature and Music departments.
Ordinary Affects is an experimental music ensemble of composers and performers. Formed in 2016 in Boston, the group includes James P. Falzone (vibraphone, piano), Morgan Evans-Weiler (violin), Laura Cetilia (cello), Luke Martin (guitar), Jordan Dykstra (viola), Francesca Caruso (violin), and Luke Damrosch (recording engineer). In addition to each performer’s own compositional work, they have toured, recorded, and/or performed with composers including Christian Wolff, Jurg Frey, Eva-Maria Houben, Michael Pisaro-Liu, Magnus Granberg, Ryoko Akama, and others. The group has had music released on Wandelweiser, Elsewhere, rhizome.s, Editions Verde, Suppedaneum, ftarri/meena, and others.
Cellist and electronic musician Laura Cetilia is a performer, composer, educator, and presenter. As a daughter of mixed heritage (second generation Mexican-American), she is at home with in-betweeness, moving through genres and practices as she did with cultures and languages growing up on the Eastside of Los Angeles. As a composer, her music has been described as “unorthodox loveliness” by the Boston Globe and “alternately penetrating and atmospheric” in Sequenza 21. She plays cello with her duo Mem1 (alongside Mark Cetilia), Ordinary Affects, Ghost Ensemble, and Suna No Onna. She is currently pursing a DMA in Music Composition at Cornell University and is a proud mother of an 8-year old who loves to draw.
J.P.A. Falzone is a musician and composer currently pursuing his doctoral studies at SUNY Buffalo.
Morgan Evans-Weiler is an interdisciplinary artist and musician currently residing in Philadelphia, PA.
Luke Martin is an experimental composer, performer, and writer living in Minneapolis, MN. He plays guitar and no-input mixing board, often with people in and around the Wandelweiser Group. Luke’s work is mainly oriented toward thinking the relation between music and truth, with a special focus on theorizing silence as such. He also runs, with Aaron Foster Breilyn, the Co-Incidence Festival.
