From ThirdCoast Digest:

Yarn/Wire, comprising pianists  Ning Yu (not pictured above) and Laura Barger and percussionists and Russell Greenberg and Ian Antonio, toured the edges of contemporary music Thursday night, at the first of four Unruly Music concerts this week. Their respect for precision timing, “controlled” randomized effects, novel uses of instruments and catering to the varied conceits of composers confirmed their value to 21st century avant-garde development.
