Hailed by Gramophone as “masters of all musical things they survey,” the Del Sol SQ shares living music with an ever-growing community of adventurous listeners. Fascinated by the feedback loop between social change, technology, and artistic innovation, the San Francisco-based ensemble is a leading force in 21st c. chamber music whether introducing Ben Johnston’s microtonal Americana at the Library of Congress, deconstructing Ruth Crawford’s experimental processes with schoolchildren, or rocking Mason Bates’ techno grooves in his Ruby Skye dance party. The NYT praised Del Sol’s recent recording, “See if your foot can stay still once you put on this funky disc of rhythmically infectious…music played by the adventurous Del Sol String Quartet.”

On Oct 22, 2016 - we finished our residency at the Richmond Art Center with "How did you make that?".  Nothing like performing (with audience help!) Steve Reich's Pendulum Music.  Also music by Bach, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Ben Johnston, and Anthony Braxton.  That's an earful to then make art to!
