stringnoiseMusic on the Edge is excited to announce our first ever collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University to host “New York’s most daring violin duo” (Time Out New York), String Noise.

String Noise is a classical, avant-punk violin duo comprising violinists Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim. Since its inception in 2011 at Ostrava New Music Days, they have expanded the two violin repertoire in over 50 new works to include larger collaborations with electronics, projections and dance. Their first feature album, The Book of Strange Positions, was released on Northern Spy Records in November 2015. String Noise was highlighted in Performa 2011 with artist Will Cotton and was the featured ensemble for the launch of composers collective Index 0. Premieres include works by Christian Wolff, John King, Phill Niblock, Caleb Burhans, David Lang, Annie Gosfield, Bernhard Lang, John Zorn and Greg Saunier. String Noise has performed at Issue Project Room, Roulette, EXAPNO, Rockwood Music Hall and the Stone and has been heard on WNYC, WKCR and WFMU.

Their Pittsburgh concert will take place at Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University at 3 p.m. on October 8th. Oh, and did we mention that this one is FREE. You’re welcome. We can’t wait to see you there!
