Yarn/Wire, a quartet formed at Stony Brook University in 2005, has specialized in the limited canon for two pianists and two percussionists, expanding the repertory with a steady stream of commissions. On Thursday evening, the group — Laura Barger and Ning Yu (who joined in September), pianists; and Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg, percussionists — inaugurated a residency at the Issue Project Room in downtown Brooklyn, meant to serve as an incubator for fresh material.
