Sound Energy is a dynamic, Boston-based string trio committed to exploring new sounds, new collaborations, and new music. Established in 2013 by founding members Micah Brightwell (violin) and Ashleigh Gordon (viola) with the subsequent addition of Benjamin Swartz (cello), SE is constantly searching for ways to push the traditional violin-viola-cello combination to represent the bold, daring voices of 20th- & 21st-century composers.
SE has worked closely with award-winning composers Jeffrey Mumford and Marti Epstein, has commissioned rising stars John Aylward, Anthony Green, Noam Faingold, Evan Kassof, Daniel T. Lewis, and Daniel Miller, and has performed on the Equilibrium Concert Series, Advent Library Series, and at Clark University in Massachusetts. With a repertoire spanning Anton Webern to Andrew Norman, Sound Energy stands at the forefront of a new generation in contemporary music with ambitious upcoming projects including tours, residencies, and large-scale commissions – all in a continued effort to explore the energy of sound.
