New Thread Saxophone Quartet brings adventurous new works from its recent University of Virginia residency to NYC.
Featuring UVA grad student composers along with special guest Ryan Muncy on soprano saxophone, the program was developed in a 4-day residency with the University of Virginia’s McIntire Department of Music. New Thread worked closely with students in the Composition & Computer Technologies program in the creation of these works, which range in compositional techniques from graphic scores, to computer directed microtonal pitches, to lighting cues and more.
