Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select early evenings.

This “fearless” (Time Out New York) quartet performs two new works that introduce an extra component to their unique piano and percussion make-up: electronics. Thomas Meadowcroft explores how we make and consume music in Walkman Antiquarian, overlaying the live performance with audio samples. Harmonies slide into focus and dissolve in Constellations, as the Canadian-born composer and visual artist Chiyoko Szlavnics interweaves sinewaves with acoustic instrumentation.

Concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
