MOTE is teaming up with the Andy Warhol Museum again to introduce you to an exciting new ensemble on the new music scene: Hypercube. A quartet of saxophone, guitar, piano, and percussion, Hypercube is a slick combination of chamber music and straight up rock-n-roll. Presenting performances of challenging, cutting-edge, repertoire, with a “sense of ensemble that is not to be rivaled” (Sequenza 21), Hypercube is at home in both electric and acoustic worlds. This gritty group of NYC musicians formed in 2012 with the goal of championing high quality, cutting-edge, challenging repertoire that is often underperformed, launching compelling debut concerts at New York City’s Galapagos Art Space and Brooklyn College, and swiftly spreading to audiences across the country. Their Pittsburgh performance will feature: American Tokyo Daydream IV (data structures/monoliths) by Sam Pluta, Quartetto da Do by Juan Trigos (2007), Hout by Louis Andriessen (1991), Color Fields by Mikel Kuehn 2007/2008, Liminal Bridges by Philip Schuessler (2016), and Localized Corrosion by Phillipe Hurel (2009).

Hypercube has been featured on the Versipel New Music Festival (New Orleans), The Frequency Series (Constellation, Chicago), and the Queens New Music Festival. Though an enticing body of work exists for this ensemble, Hypercube has commissioned and premiered new works by Daniel Tacke, Philip Schuessler, Kari Besharse, and Nomi Epstein, and regularly performs programs of trios/duos – classical guitar/piano, guitar/percussion, saxophone/piano, and saxophone/percussion featuring ultramodern compositional voices Eric Wubbels, Sam Pluta and Alex Mincek. Hypercube is Erin Rogers (saxophones), Jay Sorce (classical & electric guitar), Andrea Lodge (piano), and Chris Graham (percussion).
