Wendy Eisenberg is an improvising guitarist, banjo-player, vocalist and poet. Using the languages of free jazz, new music, extreme metal and art song, her music sets to pose and expose the questions surrounding the human body in the world and the representational and technical demands placed on it in artistic practice.

“Circles, angles, arcs, lines, intersections, Wendy Eisenberg is an explorer, inventor, author, observer, reporter, and much more. On the vanguard of the new new school, where teacher and student are irrelevant distinctions, Wendy has smelted these fine alloys for you; to build a skyscraper with a new type of scaffold.” – Matt Pike, Founder of HEC Tapes
