Composer’s temp track for festival film.

Emmy Temp

Hello Everyone!

I am beginning to write a musical composition for a very talented violinist, Jennifer Choi.  The work will be for solo violin, electronics and YOUR FAVORITE LITERATURE!

What I need is an audio library of literary excerpts.

What YOU can do is pick a short quote (paragraph or less) from your favorite writing,  record it and either send it to choiproject@plrcounterpoint, OR – call my designated answering service 1-888-282-6452 and leave the reading as a voicemail.  PRESS 3 to go directly to voicemail.

Do not hesitate to share works from any language and any period.

BUT, please tell me the author and title.

The basic scope of the piece is to match texts with period styles.  I would love to elaborate on the project, but will not be able to fully do so until I have some recordings, and can determine the broader implications of time and space.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS LINK TO ANYONE YOU MIGHT THINK IS INTERESTED.  I am going to need a lot of material, and would die if I had to sift through heckling voicemails from anonymous craigslist surfers.

I love you all!

Fugal Etude


Review from the show I presented at Galapagos Art Space on Aug. 24th, 2009.

…”Bornfield is an advocate for the delicacy, intricacy and joy of Bach.  In a seeming dialogue with Bach himself,  Bornfield can present it with the immediacy of rap and other popular music rhythms (without trashing the harmonies and counterpoint,)…this  is something fresh and exciting…The music is invigorating both for the ‘tradition’ and for new ears…

Bornfield’s music makes one feel good to be alive. What more needs to be said?”

Mark Greenfest – Reviewer for the “New Music Connoisseur” – Autumn 2009

“Bornfield’s audio visual art  is GREAT!  It is very clever and packed with imaginative humour.  It is easy to tell that Jeremiah has a good time with his work – and that’s what counts!”

Michael Schelle – Autumn 2009

“Way back in the 1920s, Jean Cocteau said ‘Take a commonplace and polish it.  Place it in a new light.  That is the work of a poet.’  With Jeremiah Bornfield’s work we not only get the familiar, polished in a new way, but mercurial changes from one polished object to another, which gives us a continual sense of surprise and delight.”
