The I/O FEST 2020 presents 4 Days and Nights of the Music of Now.
Genre-bending new music for piano and percussion featuring the internationally renowned, New York-based quartet Yarn/Wire.
Yarn/Wire is a quartet of two percussionists and two pianists. This instrumental combination allows the ensemble flexibility to slip effortlessly between classics of the repertoire and modern works that continue to forge new boundaries.
Founded in 2005 while at Stony Brook University, Yarn/Wire is admired for the energy and precision they bring to performances of today’s most adventurous music. The results of their collaborative initiatives with genre-bending artists such as Two-Headed Calf, Pete Swanson, and Tristan Perich point towards the emergence of a new and lasting repertoire that is “spare and strange and very, very new.” (Time Out NY)
