Description

 

 

“Thoroughly thought-out and seemingly spontaneous music that shows musical boundaries to be as artificial as the Berlin Wall.” —L.A. Weekly

Karen Bentley Pollick, violin; Lisa Moore, piano, electric keyboard; Joel Davel, percussion, marimba lumina; Paul Dresher, quadrachord & electric guitar 

Fresh, inventive, and hip, the Paul Dresher Double Duo performs exciting and visually compelling music that the Los Angeles Times calls a “chamber music tour de force.” Performing as two duos—one on traditional instruments, the other on Dresher’s inventions—the ensemble plays compositions by Paul Dresher, Sam Adams, and Martin Bresnick that turn conventional notions of instrumentation and composition inside-out. Featuring the quadrachord, a remarkable 15 foot-long invented stringed instrument; the lumina, a computerized marimba; as well as violin, keyboards, percussion, and electric guitar, the group combines the conventional with the unexpected to create something refreshing and new.
