Over the past decade, Marina Rosenfeld's work has come to represent one of the most progressive approaches to experimental sound emanating from New York. Rosenfeld is equally known as a composer for large-scale performances and groundbreaking turntablist. Her sonic palette - entirely drawn from hand-crafted dub plates she imprints with blips of vinyl static, bursts of instrumental noise, conversation, and other audio detritus - evokes both the ecstatic electronic artifice of early electronic composers like Morton Subotnik and the post-punk ferocity of Kim Gordon. On Plastic materials, Rosenfeld creates a compelling and dense journey through ringing, magical electroacoustic structures that are carefully overlaid with piano, voice and deconstructed language. Her compositions evoke both the radical poetics of modernism and free improv and, with it's delicate underlay of hiss, vinyl static and other aural signifiers of recording, the unlikely preservation of the ephemeral made possible by vinyl. 'Cuz' I Cannot Find My Way,' 'Hey, Girl,' and 'I Treated Myself' are excerpted from 'Teenage Lontano', Rosenfeld's acclaimed cover version for teenaged choir, of György Ligeti's 1967 orchestral masterpiece Lontano, premiered by the Whitney Museum in New York in 2008
