English violinist, Irvine Arditti, founder of the celebrated Arditti Quartet, has been a guiding influence on the string quartet medium, itself perhaps the most substantive thread in the weave of Western music tradition. His four-decade friendship with Pulitzer Prize–winning UC San Diego composer Roger Reynolds has elicited four quartets, a solo work and a chamber concerto. Now Reynolds and Arditti are collaborating on a new, large-scale work—a duo for solo violin and real-time algorithms controlled in performance by computer musician Paul Hembree. Their collaboration will be presented in a workshop where they will demonstrate the musical sources and the algorithmic strategies before giving what will be the work’s world premiere performance!



Join us for a pre-performance ArtTalk with the artists.
