Explorations Vol. 1: New Works for Saxophone
To celebrate our 5th anniversary season, New Thread Quartet is launching the first in an annual series of programs devoted to the exploration of new music for saxophone quartet, pushing the ensemble beyond its traditional formation. For Explorations Vol. 1, NTQ will perform cutting-edge new works by four uniquely-voiced New York composers, featuring modular instrumentation, electronics, lighting, and video, with a common theme of human vs. instrument.

Scott Wollschlegers Without World delves deep into a timbral universe where the softest moments feel larger-than-life, framing the multi-sized saxophones as engines of air. Ryan Pratts Blend for altos/sopranos and electronics, showcases the bright lyricism and humanism within natural multiphonic textures. Diarmid Flatleys Six Regions for four saxophonists, five laptops, and interactive video, explores an extended harmonic series through the sonic regions between pure frequencies and the human attempt at such. Pat Muchmores Hyperoperator3 for 2 tenor and 2 baritone saxophones juxtaposes multilayered rhythmic lines against microtonal keening (wailing in grief).
