Todd Reynolds Music / White Ivy
North Adams, MA and New York City
Todd Reynolds, violinist, composer, conductor, producer, has been a member of Bang on a Can and the Steve Reich Ensemble for 28 years. A “daredevil musician”, and as New Sounds’ John Schaefer notes, “the hardest working violinist in New York.", his compositional and performance style is a hybrid of old and new technology built into a multi-disciplinary aesthetic, employing pan-genre composition and improvisation at its foundation. Reynolds’ music has been called “a charming, multi-mood extravaganza, playful like Milhaud, but hard-edged like Hendrix” (Strings Magazine), and his countless premieres and performances of everything from classical music to jazz to rock ‘n’ roll long ago redefined the concert hall and underground club as undeniably and inevitably intertwined. He has appeared as a soloist with Yo-Yo Ma, was one of the original members of the Silk Road Project, and has toured with a multitude of artists from John Cale to Meredith Monk to Bruce Springsteen, to name a few. He continues to develop new electronic and chamber music collaborations and projects, enjoying orchestral, Broadway, and commercial careers along the way. His ongoing collaborations with composers, visual artists, and performers continue to contribute to his ever-expanding book of music, and his ultra-flexible concert-theater and educational event, Still Life with Microphone, tours around the nation to Universities and concert series. His educational base continues to be the Manhattan School of Music where he teaches Music Technology for Creative Musicians in the Contemporary Performance Program, while he welcomes ensembles and individual creatives to educational intensives both in NYC and at his artistic retreat and studio in North Adams, MA, the home of Bang on a Can’s Summer Music Festival of which he is a founding faculty member. An innovative recording artist, long ago in 2011 he produced a double CD set, Outerborough, on Innova Recordings, featuring InSide, a collection of his own music, paired with OutSide, music written by a veritable who’s who of contemporary composers, produced in his home recording studio. Todd Reynolds plays violins by Douglas Cox of Brattleboro, VT, and uses software by Ableton (Live) and Cycling 74 (Max/MSP) to make his music.  For more information, please visit http://toddreynolds.com
