Kronos Quartet to play encore of JG Thirlwell’s Eremikophobia in NYC

Featured in the upcoming ALARM 38: Invisible, Australian experimental composer JG Thirlwell recently commissioned his second piece for the prolific chamber ensemble Kronos Quartet.

Kronos Quartet debuted the 18-minute multi-movement piece, named Eremikophobia (a fear of sand or deserts), at Carnegie Hall in March as part of its Perspectives Series. Now, the group will perform it again on October 8 and 9 2010 at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge.

They will also be playing pieces by Michael Gordon, Clint Mansell and Dan Visconti.

Le Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street in NYC. Tickets are $25.

In other news, Thirlwell recently remixed New York-based post-avant band Zs. The release will be available later this year via Social Registry and will include remixes by Matt Shadetek from Dutty Artz, Zebrablood (a.k.a. Nathan from Excepter), Weasel Walter, Genesis Breyer P.orridge, Gabe Andruzzi from The Rapture, Cex, and Matt Papich from Ecstatic Sunshine.
