A quartet of saxophone, guitar, piano and percussion, HYPERCUBE embraces the boundaries of chamber music, at home in both electric and acoustic worlds. This group of gritty NYC musicians formed with the goal of performing high quality, cutting-edge works for modern instrumentation.
…the members… played with a sense of ensemble that is not to be rivaled. The performance was fearless and flawless, with some of the most exciting playing I have ever heard. —Sequenza 21
