Lykos is Marilu Donovan (harp), Mara Mayer (clarinet/bass clarinet), Maya Bennardo (violin), and Kristin Leitterman (oboe/English horn). The recently formed NYC-based quartet has been busy commissioning a diverse group of composers to write for their unusual instrumentation.
On January 8, Lykos will premiere commissions by:
Gabrielle Herbst’s (aka GABI) formal training began at an early age, studying Balinese dance and gamelan in Indonesia while learning both the clarinet and piano. She continued her training at Bard College where she studied voice and composition under the tutelage of Joan Tower, Zeena Parkins, and Marina Rosenfeld. Her work has been showcased at Robert Wilson’s The Watermill Center, as well as Roulette, who in 2014 commissioned and premiered her first opera, Bodiless. GABI released her debut album, Sympathy, on Software Recording Company in 2015.
Under the pseudonym Eartheater, Alexandra Drewchin is a New York-based self-produced multi-instrumentalist, composer, choreographer, and vocalist. In 2015, Alexandra released two records, Metalepsis and RIP Chrysalis, that received wide critical acclaim for their experimentation with pop and classical paradigms. In the past year, performing throughout the world, her hyper composed pieces are polarized by improvisational destruction. In observing her live performances, the visual and vicarious amplification of Drewchin’s process is experienced simultaneously in Eartheater’s physical body as she contorts and pushes tensions.
