ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The Rhythm Method strives to reimagine the string quartet in a contemporary context. Since their founding in 2014, the group has given soulful, spirited performances in New York, Vienna, Paris, and Lucerne, and have tackled works ranging from classics to premieres by living composers, including all members of the quartet. Through a mixture of thoughtful, eccentric programming, captivating performances, and collaborations with fellow artists and composers, they present concert experiences that engage and challenge their audiences.
Bernd Klug is an Austrian-born, Brooklyn-based sound artist and double bassist. In sound installations and solo concerts, his music encounters our everyday circumstances as found forms and questions our perceptions of sound and social space.
