Praised for her "alarming tour de force intensity," (The Examiner) Meaghan Burke is equally at home interpreting a wide array of contemporary music, improvising freely, or performing her own grunge-cabaret songs. Meaghan is a founding member of the contemporary, feminist string quartet The Rhythm Method, the bi-continental performance trio Dead Language, and avant-grunge band Forever House. Taking a particular interest in creative music, non-standard notation, and sound art, Meaghan has worked closely with artists such as Muhal Richard Abrams, Alvin Singleton, Butch Morris, John Zorn, Leah Asher, and Bernd Klug. She has been a guest artist with Fred Sherry, Lucy Shelton, Greg Saunier, and the FLUX Quartet (among many others), and has performed under Sir Simon Rattle and Peter Eötvös as a member of the Lucerne Festival Academy. Meaghan will release her second solo album, "Creature Comforts" (recorded and produced in New York and Vienna) this May, and her English translation of Peter Ablinger's Collected Writings (from the original German) will be published by Kehrer Verlag next fall.
