From Brooklyn’s West Nile, coming May 16:
iO Quartet performs Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram
with interludes by Mario Diaz de Leon and Doron Sadja
curated by Mario Diaz de Leon
“The music of Iancu Dumitrescu explores the ultimate sense of sound guiding the listener through new spheres of sonic adventure, a kind of cryptic music…”
Robert Zank, Edition RZ , Berlin
The New York based iO String Quartet perform the works of Romanian composers Dumitrescu (b. 1943) and Ana-Maria Avram (b. 1961). Their work of the last 30 years often finds favor with fans of noise and drone oriented music, given it’s focus on raw intensity and uncovering inner worlds of sound. iO recently performed this music on the Spectrum XXI European tour, where they worked daily with the composers, and performed as part of the 20-person “Hyperion Ensemble” (Bucharest). A rare opportunity to hear these amazing works in the USA, in the intimacy of West Nile – Brooklyn’s donation based center for experimental performance and art.
