ELECTRA = a battery of instruments: violin, electric violin, percussion, mallets, voice, keyboard, recorders, effects & electronics. Hardly your typical lineup, and the result is a fascinating collection of sounds from all across the spectrum. Top it off with visual and theatrical elements and you have a spectacular mix.
ELECTRA brings new music to life, working closely with wonderful composers and premiering dozens of works written for the ensemble. ELECTRA performs amplified and is constantly exploring new territory. Allan Kozinn of the New York Times raved about ELECTRA’s performance of Donnacha Dennehy’s The Weathering at Lincoln Center, New York, as “viscerally thrilling”.
