Golden is an ex housewife / schoolteacher from Montreal who wrote her first song
when she was 40. She studied at  Mills College with Terry Riley and Robert
Ashley. Her first cookbook / songbook came out in 84, and was reprinted in 95
delighting fans with her tasty recipes and tasteless songs. Golden produces and
hosts Crack 'o Dawn, an experimental music show for Pacifica Radio and has
interviewed Laurie Anderson, Leonard Cohen, Frederic Rzewski, La Monte Young,
David Behrman, Alvin Curran, Miya Masaoka, John Bischoff, Chris Brown, etc. Most
of the above have played live electronics on the show. A multi discipline
artist, Golden writes and performs cabaret songs with WIGband, the trash / gal
artband, her films are distributed worldwide by Encyclopedia Britannica, her
videos and installations have been seen in San Francisco, new York, Toronto,
Montreal, Budapest , Prague and Kostelec. Barbara has twice had residencies in
the Djerassi Resident Artist program in California, in 95 and 2000 she performed
in Bali and toured the States with Gamelan Sekar Jaya,  and was at Steim in 2000
working with her scanned images and Image/ine. She swims, paints tulips, has
hiked in Nepal and guest manages a B&B in Montreal. She feels that laughter,
sensuality, and pleasure are antidotes to the harsh realities the world faces.
Fun makes room for reflection, clears the mind for the spiritual repose needed,
so that one might better deal with others in harmony, and, dare i say it, peace.
