Full of energy and passion, the spirited Del Sol String Quartet reunite with Daniel Bernard Roumain (whose “String Quartet No. 4” they premiered at Other Minds 11 in March 2005) for an evening of cutting edge music-making. Daniel Bernard Roumain is a pioneer in new forms, as he marries the instrumentation of string quartet with electric violin, laptop, and a Hip-Hop turntablist. This first-ever presentation of all four of his works for the quartet medium celebrates iconic figures of American Civil Rights who are the dedicatees of each piece: Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Maya Angelou. The program concludes with a brief panel discussion in which Roumain and DJ Scientific discuss their musical partnership and perform Roumain's signature work for violin “Filter.”
