Marina Rosenfeld is a New York-based artist and composer. Her work has been at the forefront of experimental practices in sound and performance since the 1990s, when she mounted her first all-female electric-guitar ensembles under the name Sheer Frost Orchestra. Her works are known for a complex integration of notation and improvisation as the basis for sculptural interventions into monumental and/or resonant spaces, and a conceptual approach to the deployment of loudspeakers, bodies and musical forms.
Her work has been presented at numerous institutions, festivals, and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum and the Park Avenue Armory in New York; the Whitney (2002 and 2008), Montreal (2016), Liverpool (2011) and PERFORMA (2009 and 2011) biennials; the Holland Festival, Tate Modern, Stejdlijk Museum, Vienna Secession, Wien Modern, and many others. Projects in 2017 include solo exhibitions at Portikus (Frankfurt) and the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies (New York), as well as commissioned works for “Every Time A Ear Di Soun: documenta 14 Radio" (Athens and Kassel), and Donaueschingen Musiktage (Germany).
