Emergency String Xtet – “Meridians” – [Self Release]

Cousin Mary   8/8/2009   A Library, CD

The Emergency String (x)tet (2 violins, 2 cellos, and a bass) engages in non-structured free improvisation. The “X” in the name refers to the varying number of players as well as the X-factor in their playing.

These out of the ordinary, challenging pieces from these Bay Area musicians were recorded live at Meridian Gallery (SF). Mostly sparse tracks with an occasional rowdy outburst.
