About c)i

counter)induction's mission since its inception has been straightforward: world-class performances of contemporary chamber music, without hype and without agenda other than our complete commitment to the most compelling music of our day. With six exceptional players and three composers (Kyle Bartlett, Douglas Boyce, Ryan Streber), counter)induction focuses on programming that is provocative, insightful, and unexpected. This brings us from historically-motivated programs like “Futures Past,” a concert of new works exploring the multiplicities of histories present in the moment of performance, to “X+N,” a series-within-a-series matching c)i soloists with rare and seminal electronic music.
