"Michelle Green Willner is a facile composer whose diversity, complexity, and density of sound is impressive. She approaches each project with fearlessness; the outcome of each piece being her only concern.  As a collaborator, she is a willing participant in the journey of discovery, clarification, and expression. Her love of the arts is evident in all she does." Doni Silver Simons, artist

“Reverberations from the past affect what occurs today” (Elie Wiesel).

Reverberations was a site specific, multi-sensory, contemporary performance inspired by three poems that captured an urgency of oncoming darkness and survival. The audience was transported through sound, movement and projected imagery.

From Randi Matushevitz:

"Michelle Green Willner’s musical compositions are filled with story, emotion and humanity. I find myself lost in the dramatic complexity she conveys.  When I asked her to create a special sound exploring the emotional collateral of fear, she responded with CANON/DRUM; which she made especially for this exhibition."

“In canon/drum, a collaboration with Randi Matushevitz, I used the double play on the word conundrum in order to create an urban, street atmosphere surrounded by the pathos of a melodic canon or round inspired by Randi’s evocative and multi-layered paintings.”

Homelessness in LA_Art, Poetry and Music
On September 22, 2019, I was invited to present my music, as well as a talk at the New Center for Psychoanalysis.
The program was titled, Homelessness in LA: Art, Poetry and Music. As part of the program, I collaborated with
Robert Lundquist, composing a piece of music as an underscore to his minimal poem, A Poem A Reflection.
