Seidler Salon Series: Lori Goldston
Music and architecture come together in a series of concerts hosted in and around, and inspired by, the singular buildings of Australia’s most famous modernist architect, Harry Seidler.
Seattle cellist Lori Goldston plays songs, improvisations and compositions, restlessly exploring the far reaches of the instrument’s voice in response to the unique modernist surrounds of the Seidler Penthouse.
Classically-trained and ‘rigorously detrained’, Goldston dwells in the liminal spaces between idioms and eras. A veteran improvisor – steeped in classical music but with an intense interest in rock, jazz, folk and music from around the world – Goldston is co-founder of the Black Cat Orchestra and was famously a touring member of Nirvana (Goldston's cello features on MTV Unplugged in New York). She has worked with Terry Riley, David Byrne, Cat Power, Marisa Anderson and Earth, and frequently performs live scores for silent films.
Goldston’s solo work ranges across genre, from minimalism to Americana-tinged folk to psychedelic distortion, but always with her trademark intensity and boundless talent for improvisation.
"The music could only be described as a swarm or flock of sound… Listening was not an entirely earthbound experience. It was strange and thrilling” – thestranger.com
