PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE:

Yarn/Wire completes its residency at Issue Project Room with new works from three extraordinary American composers. Andrew McIntosh is a Los Angeles-based composer who draws inspiration from his natural surroundings and investigates just intonation. Coming from an experimentalist tradition, Elizabeth Adams imbues her richly textured music with a sense of muted play. Now residing in the Midwest, Christopher Burns creates rapidly changing complex surfaces teeming with dense minutia. This concert is a special opportunity to experience three wildly unique approaches to modern composition.
Yarn/Wire is a chamber quartet specializing in the performance of 21st century music. A unique instrumental combination of two percussionists (Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg) and two pianists (Laura Barger and Ning Yu) allows Yarn/Wire to interface with both traditional performance practice and emergent stylistic trends with ease. Founded in 2005 at Stony Brook University, the members of Yarn/Wire have extensive performance and pedagogic experience encompassing international and domestic music festivals, college and university residences, and substantive work in the avant-garde theater and DIY/punk worlds. Frequent collaborations with composers on new work form a significant portion of the ensemble's activities. In addition to presenting multiple US premieres, Yarn/Wire has given the world premieres of over two dozen new works written specifically for the ensemble.
