DITHER, a New York based electric guitar quartet, is dedicated to an eclectic mix of experimental repertoire which spans composed music, improvisation, and electronic manipulation. Formed in 2007, the quartet has performed across the United States and abroad presenting new commissions, original compositions, multimedia works, and large guitar ensemble pieces. The quartet’s members are Taylor Levine, Joshua Lopes, James Moore and Gyan Riley.
Dither has worked with a wide range of artists, including Eve Beglarian, Fred Frith, David Lang, Phill Niblock, Larry Polansky, Lee Ranaldo, Elliott Sharp, Lois V. Vierk, and John Zorn. Past performances include the Performa Biennial, The MATA Festival, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Amsterdam Electric Guitar Heaven Festival, Hong Kong's Fringe Theater, and the Bang on a Can Marathon. Dither produces their annual Extravaganza, a raucous festival of creative music and art, which has been called an "official concert on the edge" by the New Yorker. Their critically acclaimed debut album was released on Henceforth Records, and their upcoming record Dither plays Zorn will come out on Tzadik in January 2015.
