Miller Theatre at Columbia University

The music of Australian-born, Berlin-based composer Thomas Meadowcroft has been described as "reaching an inexpressible purity” (Le Monde) and “dreamy post-rock” (The New York Times). The intrepid Yarn/Wire performs the world premiere of a pair of commissioned works, in which Meadowcroft pulls from an array of influences to create his own unique take on pop songs.
