Catherine Lamb - viola
Catherine Lamb (b. 1982, Northwestern U.S.) is a composer dedicating herself to the elemental interaction of tone—by the investigation into partial theory (extended just intonation) and variations in presence of materiality/field within unfolding forms/structures. She has written for numerous musicians/ensembles (in North America and in Europe), co-developed an experimental gathering with Laura Steenberge in Los Angeles Singing By Numbers, interprets/researches the music of Viola Torros with Johnny Chang (Konzert Minimal), and collaborates regularly with Bryan Eubanks in Berlin, including the co-running of a collective Sacred Realism. Her most influential mentors have been Mani Kaul, James Tenney, and Michael Pisaro.
