We are pleased to welcome Molly Herron to the show. Molly Herron is a composer whose music is inspired by the complicated, messy sounds of our every day environment and the energy of interaction. Her rhythmically driven work has been called “a beautiful collusion” (Seen and Heard International) and described as “showcasing a wonderful consideration of counterpoint and sound-in-time” (I Care If You Listen). Herron’s music often veers outside of traditional western classical instruments. She works frequently with Baroque instruments and everyday objects and collaborates with instrument inventors to find new avenues for sound. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Herron is an active participant in the promotion of new music through performance, education, and arts advocacy across the country. She is a co-founder and artistic director of the composer collective West Fourth New Music, which has been producing concerts since 2010. The group has been praised for their “exquisitely curated” concerts. These accomplishments make Molly the perfect person to discuss our ongoing narrative of creating music from the raw materials around us.
