Anne Goldberg is the founder and artistic director of the Synthesis Aesthetics Project, a collaborative between musicians, dancers, multimedia and spoken word artists. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wellesley College and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and is a M.M. of Classical Composition at Manhattan School of Music in Marjorie Merryman's studio. In April 2010, Anne presented her undergraduate thesis, composing a contemporary ballet in four movements using acoustic spatialization in combination with visual choreography. She has since been a guest choreographer at the Boston Center for the Arts and for Modern Discomfort, a modern company based in Boston. In 2008, she spent the fall of her junior year abroad to study music at the Accademia Internazionale della Musica in Milan, Italy, studying under Roberto Andreoni. In Boston and New York, Anne is a freelance oboe-English horn player, and played regularly for the New England Philharmonic and Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra. Anne’s music has been premiered in Boston and New York by ensembles such as the Boston New Music Institute, the Firebird Ensemble, and at the Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice at New England Conservatory. While in Boston, she studied under Peter Child, Randall Hodgkinson, and Barbara Lafitte in composition, oboe, and piano, respectively.
In addition to her musical and choreographic pursuits, Anne is a professional figure skater, holding gold freestyle, artistry and ice dancing titles in the United States and Canada as well as International ice dancing titles. As a member of the Ice Theater of New York and a freelance coach, she teaches ballet and modern dance for figure skaters, as well as general conditioning and Pilates classes. In addition to teaching, Anne was a featured dancer in Boston based dance companies Modern Discomfort, Unyted Stylz Crew, and LBArts Collective.
Anne believes there is an integral connection amongst all art forms, and she strives to explore her inner creativity in any direction or idiom in which it follows. In some Eastern cultures, dance and music are expressed by the same word because they are treated as actions done together. In her work, Anne hopes to bring this concept to the consciousness of her audience by integrating performance and creativity in a complimentary, innovative, manner.
