XTRO + Pelargos Quartet

Anyone who owns a smartphone knows it: they connect us to the rest of the world and alienate us from each other. In [Dis/re]-connecting by composer Charles Baumstark, percussion trio XTRO and string quartet Pelargos Quartet search for answers to the question of how we can develop a healthy relationship with our phones. XTRO will also play Objects and Portrait Projections by Gaudeamus Award 2024 nominee Patrick Ellis. A minimal music-like percussion piece that incorporates both electronics and plastic bottles.
