Yarn | Wire, a quartet whose repertoire has been described as “spare and strange and very, very new,” will be in residence at UB’s Center for 21st Century Music on Nov. 1 for a graduate workshop and an evening concert.
The ensemble — featuring percussionists Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg, and pianists Laura Barger and Ning Yu — will perform at 7:30 p.m. in Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall, North Campus. The program includes Enno Poppe’s “Feld,” Linda Catlin Smith’s “Morandi” and Misato Mochizuki’s “Le monde des rondes et des carrés.”
Earlier in the day, quartet members will read new compositions by three PhD students.
Founded in 2005 at Stony Brook University, the quartet is known for collaborative initiatives with such genre-bending artists as Two-Headed Calf, Pete Swanson and Tristan Perich. The group has been called “fearless” by TimeOut NY, and “intrepid” and engrossing” by The New York Times.
