Q: When is a string quartet not like a string quartet? A: When it’s a quartet of electric guitarists! NMNC welcomes Dither to end our season, a New York-based electric guitar quartet dedicated to an eclectic mix of experimental repertoire which spans composed music, improvisation, and electronic manipulation. From quiet and intense to raucous and driving, Dither’s performance is sure to expand your musical horizons.
Formed in 2007, Dither has performed across the United States and abroad, presenting new commissions, original compositions, improvisations, multimedia works, and large guitar ensemble pieces. Dither’s members are Taylor Levine, Joshua Lopes, James Moore and Gyan Riley.
Dither has performed and collaborated with a wide range of artists including Eve Beglarian, Fred Frith, Mary Halvorson, David Lang, Ikue Mori, Phill Niblock, Lee Ranaldo, Lois V. Vierk, Yo La Tengo, and John Zorn. Their latest release, Dither plays Zorn on Tzadik, featuring the premiere recordings of several of John Zorn’s improvisational game pieces, was named one of Rolling Stone’s “top avant albums of 2015.”
Pre-concert talk by NMNC Director Stephen Miles at 7:30.
