Event Information

Approaching the end of a five-year residency in NYC, this concert of overtone-informed music — combining acoustic experimentation, proportional structures, and fanciful handiwork — features some of the musicians I’ve been privileged to work with during that span.

Compositions on the program explore overtone relationships in an equal-tempered context, natural harmonics of microtonally tuned fundamentals, non-systematic derivations from text, extended Just Intonation, and the juxtaposition of tuning and temperament systems with fixed media and controlled pitch drift. 

Performing are:
Edward Forstman (piano) http://www.edwardforstman.com
Jacob Elkin (trombone) https://newyorkcomposerscircle.org/composers/jacob-elkin.html

“Monroe Golden’s music stands ‘in the cracks’… It resides in nether-regions of sound, concept and aesthetics where acoustics, mathematics and music meet.” – Michael Huebner, Birmingham News/ArtsBHAM

“This music has a way of prying open hidden rooms in your listening, which you didn’t know even existed. Golden teaches you something about hearing and about sound.” – Ingvar Nordin, Sonoloco Record Reviews (Sweden)

“an intriguing and ultimately gripping experience for the listener with open ears, patience, and a taste for adventure.” – Stephen Eddins, All Music Guide
