The Carleton Music Dept welcomes the Laudie D. Porter Artist, Cipher, featuring original works by Sarah Goldfeather, Kate Soper, and a new work by Fjola Evans.
Cipher is a voice and violin ensemble dedicated to performing and commissioning music by emerging and established contemporary composers. In 2014 soprano Justine Aronson walked into a party in Brooklyn, knowing not a soul. Within minutes, she and and violinist Sarah Goldfeather, complete strangers, were enthusiastically singing Christmas carols, making merry for all. Music was made. Cipher was born.
Hailed by The New York Times as possessing “a deep reservoir of expressive devices” and by the Los Angeles Timesas “dramatically…juicy,” soprano Justine Aronson employs artistic and technical versatility to create passionate performances. Her interpretations have consistently captured the attention of those producing new music, earning her premieres with composers including David Lang, Daron Hagen, and Ted Hearne. She has appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Five Boroughs Music Festival, Eighth Blackbird, Mirror Visions Ensemble, Opera Philadelphia, and Brooklyn Art Song Society, among others. Justine has recorded for the NAXOS label, and is anticipating the forthcoming commercial record release of Christopher Cerrone’s portrait album LA-based modern music collective wild Up.
