Yarn WireThe composers of the University of Virginia’s Composition and Computer Technologies PhD Program present a colloquium by Yarn | Wire on contemporary techniques in piano and percussion for performers.  Yarn|Wire is a chamber quartet that specializes in the performance of 20th and 21st century music, with a unique instrumental combination of two pianists (Laura Barger and Ning Yu) and two percussionists(Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg).This free event will take place at 11am on Friday 1/27/17 in room B018 Old Cabell Hall.

Reactions about Yarn | Wire from some of the most relevant press for the arts in the United States and the UK include:

"...questioning the boundaries of what music might be." - The Guardian 
"fearless" / "restlessly curious" / "spellbinding virtuosity" / "spare, strange, and very, very new" - TimeOutNY 
"...sonic art that is clearly going places." - Philip Clark, Gramophone

The collaboration between Yarn | Wire and the University of Virginia will culminate in a concert that will take place in the Old Cabell Hall in January 27th, 2017 at 8 pm. The concert will feature eight premieres for two pianists, two percussionists and electronics by the university’s composers, whose explorations encompass a strikingly broad spectrum of acoustic and electronic sound worlds

These events are sponsored by the UVA Arts Council Enriching the Arts on Grounds.
