Eileen Mack

Hailed by the New York Times as "a striking clarinetist known for her work in Victoire, Newspeak and other vital new-music ensembles", Eileen Mack grew up in Australia and is now based in New York. She is a member of post-minimalist band Victoire and amplified ensemble Newspeak (which she also co-directs), and has performed with many other New York new music groups including ACME, ymusic, Wet Ink, Alarm Will Sound, Signal Ensemble, the Bang on a Can All Stars and the Wordless Music Orchestra. She has performed in venues around the world including Zankel Hall, the Sydney Opera House, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and London's Royal Albert Hall; with conductors including Pierre Boulez, Oliver Knussen, Brad Lubman and Alan Pierson; and has appeared as soloist at the Canberra International Chamber Music Festival and the Bang on a Can Marathon. Her discography includes the Grammy nominated album Place by Ted Hearne / Saul Williams, and ranges from work on the Crocodile Hunter TV and movie soundtracks to releases on New Amsterdam Records, Tzadik, Innova, and Warp Records. Eileen holds degrees from Stony Brook University, the Manhattan School of Music and the Queensland Conservatorium, and was a recipient of a Churchill Fellowship.
