Ensemble Signal

Ensemble Signal is a large NY-based ensemble dedicated to offering the broadest possible audience access to a diverse range of contemporary works through performance, commissioning, recording, and education. Its Artist roster includes some of most gifted and innovative young musicians working in New York. To form what The New York Times has described as “one of the most vital groups of its kind,” co-Artistic Directors Brad Lubman and Lauren Radnofsky assembled a “new music dream team” (TimeOutNY) of independent artists who have worked closely with one another and Lubman over the last decade. Signal is flexible in size and instrumentation, enabling it to meet the demands of its diverse repertoire that ranges from Steve Reich to Helmut Lachenmann. Signal made its debut in Spring 2008 at the Bang on a Can Marathon in NYC and the Ojai Music Festival in California, and has since performed at venues including Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall, The Tanglewood Music Festival, The Guggenheim Museum (NYC), and Miller Theatre. Signal’s recordings include Philip Glass’s Glassworks and Music in Similar Motion (Philip Glass’s Orange Mountain label); and Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Penelope (New Amsterdam Records). Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe’s Shelter (Cantaloupe); and Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians and pulitzer-prize winning Double Sextet (Cantaloupe).
