Dither Guitar Quartet

New Sounds

All Fours

Monday, April 20, 2015

Listen to music for quartets, but not the usual two violins, viola, and cello. Rather, the guiding principle will be four musicians, playing everything from marimba to mandolin.

All Fours (Special Podcast)

WNYC

Listen to music for quartets on this New Sounds - but not the usual two violins, viola, and cello.  Rather, the guiding principle will be four musicians, playing everything from marimba to mandolin.  Hear from the electric guitars of Dither Quartet, along with music from the Prism Sax Quartet (saxophones).  Then there's music from the Brooklyn-based percussion quartet Ensemble et al, - whose members "take a garage band approach" to chamber works, minimalism, modal jazz, and instrumental rock- on marimba, vibraphone, glockenspiel, and drum set. (The KISS t-shirt in some of their online photos does wonders to set their tone.)
