Press Quotes:

“adventurous, rule-breaking”
-Matt Mendez, NewMusicBox

“spell cast by the music”
-New York Times

Daniel Wohl’s Microfluctuations in Plainchant (for four saxophones and electronics), performed by the New Thread Quartet alongside four other pieces for saxophone quartet, was spellbinding. The microfluctuations of the title refer to the fluctuations in the frequencies after sending the chorale through an equalizer – what might happen if J.S. Bach had access to electronics and/or hallucinogens.”
-Rebecca Lentjes, Bachtrack

“It’s no coincidence that a great deal of chamber music is composed for quartets and trios: This lends itself to instrumental cohesion, yet allows for endless possibilities in harmonic, dynamic, and melodic variety. As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe put it, a musical quartet is “four rational people conversing.”
-Jack Crager, Vox Novus

“The piece begins with a series of mysterious chords by the sax quartet, emerging like church-organ musings while two dancers (Skurr and Moen), still down from the last count, slowly come to and literally roll off stage. Palughi remains and, as the music builds, she is joined by a passer-by male dancer from the audience who revives her like a reluctant flower and stirs up a duet. The other dancers return for an energetic four-way interplay, while the saxes exchange increasingly frantic flurries and an almost combative sonic bantering.”
-Jack Crager, Vox Novus
