Composer/Performer Judith Berkson uses voice along with digital and analog keyboards to create pieces that cross the boundaries of classical, electronic, and experimental music. She has collaborated with the Kronos Quartet, City Opera, Laurie Anderson and has premiered vocal works by Chaya Czernowin, Enno Poppe, Mick Barr, Joe Maneri, Rick Burkhardt, Gerard Pape, Julia Wentz and Aleksandra Vrebalov. She has collaborated on Yiddish folk music with Theodore Bikel and has presented solo works at the Picasso Museum Malaga, Le Poisson Rouge and National Sawdust. Her solo album Oylam on ECM Records was described as “Standards and Schubert and liturgical music, swing and chilly silences, a beautiful Satie-like piece to open and close the record. I can’t get enough of it” (New York Times). Her opera The Vienna Rite is based on the collaboration between composer Franz Schubert and the Viennese cantor Salomon Sulzer during the 19th century. Her current work focuses on microtonal writing for acoustic instruments and voice.
