Dither Electric Guitar Quartet, New York’s rising force in contemporary guitar music, announces Dither’s Invisible Dog Extravaganza! in celebration of the release of their debut album on Henceforth Records. Dither will be joined by an eclectic community of collaborators to perform music that spans minimalism, noise, free improvisation, psychedelic synth-pop and the avant-garde.
Highlights include Elliott Sharp performing selections from Octal for eight-string guitarbass, a solo bagpipe performance from progressive piper Matthew Welch, a collaboration between pianist Kathleen Supové and composer/guitarist Nick Didkovsky, and the Deprivation Orchestra of NY’s rendition of Eric km Clark’s Deprivation Music #1 for a large ensemble of hearing-deprived musicians! Dither will perform selections from their album, as well as the the world premiere of Eve Beglarian’s The Garden of Cyrus, Fred Frith’s Stick Figures performed by two players on six table-top guitars, and James Tenney’s rarely heard Septet for six guitars and electric bass.
