"THEY WERE GREETED WITH A THUNDERING OVATION, MORE COMMON FOR AMERICAN IDOLS" - HUFFINGTON POST
"New YORK's MOST DARING VIOLIN DUO" - TIME OUT NY
NORTHERN SPY RECORDS PRESENTS:
String Noise is an "enterprising violin duo" in NYC. Classical avant-garde violinists Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim, who are married, have expanded the two violin repertoire in over 30 new works to include larger collaborations with electronics, projections and dance.
Their first feature album "The Book of Strange Positions" was released on NORTHERN SPY RECORDS in November 2015. Tiny MiX Tapes describes this collection of original works and arrangements by Eric Lyon of punk covers by Bad Brains, Violent Femmes, Deerhoof, Radiohead, and Black Flag as a "mix of classic punk covers and ZERO APOLOGIES."
String Noise was highlighted in Performa 2011 with artist Will Cotton and was the featured ensemble for the launch of composers collective Index 0. Premieres include works by Christian Wolff, John King, Phill Niblock, Caleb Burhans, David Lang, Annie Gosfield, Bernhard Lang and John Zorn. String Noise has performed at Issue Project Room, Roulette, EXAPNO, Rockwood Music Hall and the Stone and has been heard on WNYC and WKCR.
As curators, Conrad and Pauline presented Drawing Sound: Part II at the Drawing Center - a three night mini-festival featuring artists Alvin Lucier, Greg Saunier and Jad Fair.
