About Modulus Quartet

String Quartet

Modulus Quartet is a dynamic string group specialising in performing and recording the works of living composers. Working closely with a handful of composers, they create unique works for string quartet for the 21st century. Modulus have recently performed Spook, by Anna Meredith, at London's Barbican Centre. As well as featuring the quartet, marimba and solo guitar, the piece involved massed guitars and ukeleles from East London's Newham Music. Modulus are currently collaborating with composers Richard Norris, Eliot Short, Terry Davies, Ash Madni, and Matthew Slater for their debut album, scheduled for release in November. They are also working with the Charlie Pyne Jazz Quartet under the name Plank creating original compositions for octet. Plank are working with composer Terry Davies on a live score for Man Ray's silent film Les Mysteres du Chateau du De. Modulus are also one of a handful of quartets in the world trained in the extraordinary techniques of spectral music. They regularly perform with the ground breaking Hyperion Ensemble, founded by Romanian composers Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram.
