The dynamic composer-driven ensemble counter)induction is committed to demonstrating musical parallels in what might otherwise seem to be opposing forms; immersing audiences in the world of contemporary music through high energy performance and a razor-sharp aesthetic. counter)induction will premiere a new work by featured composer Anthony Coleman alongside the music of absurdist auteur Mauricio Kagel and Hungary's greatest living composer György Kurtág.

"An uncommon combination of precision, suppleness and an almost choreographed interpretive approach." —New York Times

This is a joint concert with composer/performer Anthony Coleman; c)i will premiere a new work, as well works by Boyce, Kurtág and Kagel. The first half of the concert will feature Coleman and friends performing Kagel's rarely heard Der Schall, quite possibly a once in a life time opportunity.
