Video 7/25/2016: The Hurd Ensemble

Performing original music by San Francisco-based composer George Hurd, The Hurd Ensemble, selected by Kennedy Center Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates, unifies the worlds of electronic and classical music. All the music is written for string quartet (violin, viola, cello, upright bass), piano, and electronics, meticulously bound together with digitally arranged sounds collected from Hurd’s travels.
