• Always at the forefront, seeking the new and pushing toit's limits the boundaries of the traditional string quartet, it is no surprise the Kronos Quartet sought out Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq for another collaboration with Canadian composer Derek Charke. • Tagaq's guttural, highly intimate, primal sounds date back to her ancestors. • She has turned these sounds into an art form that has enthralled audiences the world over. • Pursuing a singular artistic vision for more than 40 years, the Kronos Quartet has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time. • JUNO & ECMA Award winning composer and flutist Derek Charke is a full professor at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. • The president of the Acadia New Music Society which runs the annual Shattering the Silence New Music Festival, Mr. Clarke continues to perform regularly as a new music performer and flute improviser. • "It's one of the major, spectacular pieces that has ever been written for Kronos." - David Harrington, Kronos Quartet.
