Composer, conductor, performer, group facilitator, and creator of Reflexive Music, Keren Rosenbaum began her music education at the age of 7 with L. Kogan and flute with Y. Arenheim. She moved to The Hague at the age of 21 to study composition, electronic music and music education in the Tel Aviv Academy with A. Shapira & L. Schidlowsky. Graduating with honors at the Royal Academy with L. Andriessen, G. Bergeijk, R. DeMan, D. Wagenaar, C. Barlow and completed her Masters in Brooklyn College under A. Walman & T. Leon.
In 1999 Keren curated the first interdisciplinary music festival and founded the REFLEX Ensemble, a worldwide community of musicians and artists that gained world recognition for their unique exhibitions, workshops, and ongoing performances of Reflexive Music. Often described by both listeners and performers as "passionately inventive" and "on the edge," Reflexive Music has given rise to the Active Listening Playground (ALP) Approach & Tools.
In 2013 Rosenbaum founded the Composing Community Global Organization. Home to the Reflexive Music Academy, it was dedicated to teach and spread Reflexive Music through Active Listening Playground (ALP) Approach & Tools. ALP Approach helps foster positive connections, creativity, and innovation using a practice of playfulness.
ALP Approach is practiced around the world. Al Akhawayn University, Ifran; Tel Aviv University, The Arts University, Helsinki; WE ACT, The Goethe Institute, Chelsea Art Museum, NY; Musicians without Borders and the Peace Corps to name a few.
After witnessing the impact her music and methodology had on innovative communications and sustainable community growth, Keren decided to unleash it on one of the areas that need it most today - the work environment.
“Keren is simply a Houdini when dealing with an audience. It was so delightful and informative to be in the presence of an artist whose deep commitment, belief and joy literally compel the audience to become involved.”
