Miller Theatre at Columbia University

Listen to any work by Raphaël Cendo and you will immediately feel its energy. Born in France and now based in Berlin, Cendo describes his affinity for both sonic and kinetic excess as an exploration of “saturation”—in terms of timbre, intensity, space, and gesture. The ever-ambitious musicians of Either/Or and Yarn/Wire team up for this exhilarating Portrait of Cendo’s chamber works, which includes the knockout Direct Action, written for Yarn/Wire.
