New York-based electric guitar quartet
Dither, formed in 2007,
Taylor Levine, David Linaburg, Joshua Lopes, and James Moore on
Dither (Henceforth, 2010), a collection of avantgarde compositions
by several contemporary composers.
Lainie Fefferman's Tongue of thorns sounds like an
Indian pow-wow dance with a looped heavy-metal riff.
Eric Clark's exPAT also employs looped "metal" overtones and does so in
a much more traumatic manner leading to chaotic videogame-like cacophony.
Jascha Narveson's Vectors toys with spatial decoherence (the listener
is supposed to sit in the middle of the performers).
Joshua Lopes' Pantagruel (the only piece here by a member of the quartet)
begins as a solemn solo meditation but ends like old-fashioned
Lisa Coons' four-movement Cross-sections explores subtle and convoluted
counterpoint that is usually reserved for (multi-instrumental) chamber music.
The influence of Glenn Branca and
Elliott Sharp, that one would expect
to be relevant, is actually only marginal.
