Since its inception in New York in 2007, DITHER has become one of the most captivating electric guitar quartets on the planet. Its members pair unmatched technique with a sure-footed taste for boldness and discovery. The group’s repertoire mostly features commissioned works and original compositions by its members. They often navigate across the divide between written and improvised music.
TAYLOR LEVINE, JOSHUA LOPES and JAMES MOORE, all original members of the ensemble, will be making their first appearance at FIMAV, while GYAN RILEY, who joined them a few years ago, is visiting us for the third time (many will remember his participation to JOHN ZORN’s “Bagatelles” alongside Julian Lage, and his unforgettable performance with his father Terry Riley).
DITHER is very active in the USA and tours occasionally in Europe. Recently, they presented a live 13-guitar version of Steve Reich’s “Electric Counterpoint.” And they released three excellent albums, including one on Tzadik where they perform game pieces by ZORN. Their latest CD Potential Differences came out last fall.On the Web
