The collective comprises six US-based composers presenting two programs at 1 Rivington beginning with "Kinds of Strings," an interactive performance-reading featuring new quartets, with live introductions from the composers.

This program reflects on themes of mortality, place, race in America, and of the marginalization and erasure of women throughout history.

Emma O'Halloran – Dying is a Wild Night
Shelley Washington – SAY
Finola Merivale – Do You Hear Me Now?
Maria Kaoutzani – jaune doré
Gemma Peacocke – Erasure
