Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti is a multifaceted musician who plays, teaches, writes, and writes about contemporary music. A “leading composer-performer” (The New York Times), Lanzilotti has been a guest artist with Alarm Will Sound, Ensemble Signal, and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). Her current commissioning initiatives include new works by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Andrew Norman, Scott Wollschleger, and Dai Fujikura. As a recording artist, she’s played on albums from Björk’s Vulnicura Live to Ted Hearne’s The Source. As a composer, Lanzilotti is interested in translating sounds from everyday life onto traditional instruments using nontraditional playing methods. Her compositions often deal with unique instrument-objects, such as her commissions from The Noguchi Museum involving sound. Beginning in fall 2019, Lanzilotti will be on the faculty of The Tianjin Juilliard School as Co-Director of the New Music Ensemble and New Music Festival. She is the creator of Shaken Not Stuttered, a free online resource demonstrating extended techniques for strings. Lanzilotti has published articles in Music & Literature and Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, and written program notes for London Symphony Orchestra.
