UVA Residency was a blast!

New Thread Quartet had a blast visiting UVA’s McIntire Department of Music for a 4-day residency this month. We rehearsed, performed, and recording music by PhD students in the Composition & Computer Technologies program. Their compositions spanned an incredible range of ideas and styles including font-based notation, computer directed composition with just intonation, LED light controlled performance instructions, polyphonic voice/sax glissandi, and more. Thanks to Ryan Muncy for sitting in with use for the visit and congratulations to composers Aaron Stepp, Rachel Devorah, Rebecca Brown, Alex Christie, Heather Mease, Christopher Luna-Mega, Ben Luca Robertson, and Eli Stine!
