Out of the lab and into a concert. What happens when composers collaborate with inventors and high-tech instrument builders? The latest in robotic instruments meets vocalists and acoustic instruments. Music for ancient viols and Dervish Robots that sound like a "choir of angry angels." Contemporary singers meet up in new ways with theremins - one of the earliest of electronic instruments. Explore what happens when you combine pianos, electronics and...a bicycle. Discover what Sound Orb tactile speakers can do. And check out a new composition for iLophone, the latest pitch-bending new iPhone instrument.

Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble
With the precision and flexibility of modern chamber musicians, Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble specializes in experimental repertoire that is changing the paradigm of contemporary vocal music. Described as "a new force of vocal excellence and innovation" by The Brooklyn Rail, Quince continually pushes the boundaries of traditional vocal ensemble literature. As dedicated advocates of new music, Quince regularly commissions new works, providing a wider exposure for the music of living composers, and supports the efforts of concert series and universities who strive to incorporate contemporary repertoire into their programming. Quince has recently been seen on Vicky Chow's Contagious Sounds Series, a.per.io.dic's John Cage Festival in Chicago and the Philip Glass: Music with Friends benefit concert at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn. Comprised of vocalists Elizabeth Pearse, Kayleigh Butcher, Amanda DeBoer Bartlett, and Carrie Henneman Shaw, Quince thrives on unique musical challenges and genrebending contemporary repertoire.  www.quince-ensemble.com
