About:

JL Marlor is a Brooklyn based multidisciplinary artist, composer and educator. Known for her narrative-driven multi genre chamber music, her work examines the intersections between the collective and the individual as it relates to protest and social change, drawing heavily from Slavic women’s music, riot grrrl punk, plainchant, and American protest music. JL has written for Wet Ink Ensemble, SparkDuo, The DeCamera Singers, Mivos Quartet, OperaRox, LoftOpera, New Music Gathering. Beyond her work as a composer, JL fronts her indie rock band THB and was one of the songwriters for Seonjae Kim’s riot grrrl punk adaptation of Antigone, Riot Antigone which premiered at La MaMa in 2017 and received its following off-Broadway premiere at ArsNova. In addition to her work as a composer and songwriter, JL is a passionate educator teaching composition with the New York Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers and is a founding member of American Composer’s Orchestra’s genre-defying educational initiative Sonic Spark Lab.
