Yarn/Wire is a New York-based quartet of two percussionists and two pianists. Founded in 2005, Yarn/Wire is admired for the energy and precision they bring to performances of today's most adventurous music. The results of the collaborative initiatives with genre-bending artists such as Two-Headed Calf, Pete Swanson, and Tristan Perich point towards the emergence of a new and lasting repertoire that is "spare and strange and very, very new." (Time Out NY) I joined Yarn/Wire in 2011. Members of Yarn/Wire also include pianist Laura Barger, percussionists Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg. More Information: yarnwire.org
