Composer and pianist Anthony Green works primarily with sound textures in dynamic processes. His approach to composition comprises an awareness and respect of the past co-mingled with a desire to push for the new of the present and the future. Balancing on the see-saw of cerebral and visceral, his 100+ works have been performed and diffused in over a dozen countries by many world-class ensembles and soloists, such as Ashleigh Gordon, Guido Arbonelli, ALEA III (with Gunther Schuller), Ensemble Transmission, BLY, and the Ossia New Music Ensemble, to name a few. He is also the co-founder of a new Boston-based concert series organization, entitled “Castle of our Skins”.
