Kathleen Supové challenges and thrills NMNC audiences every time she performs here, whether it be with powerful, dark pieces like Lainie Fefferman's Barnacles, ethereal ones like Missy Mazzoli's Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos, raucous ones like Frederic Rzewski's Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues, electronically processed ones like Randall Woolf's Adrenaline Revival, or as part of a theatrical duo with singer Corey Dargel in his disturbing yet humorous Removable Parts. In 2012 she received ASCAP's John Cage award for “the artistry and passion with which she performs, commissions, records, and champions the music of our time.”

Jennifer Choi has charted a career that breaks through the conventional boundaries of solo violin, chamber music, and the art of improvisation. A frequent collaborator with living composers, Jennifer has performed solo works written for her including Randall Woolf’s Holding Fast for violin and video, Wadada Leo Smith’s violin concerto Afrikana 2, Orlando Garcia’s violin concerto Una Marea Cresciente, and Susie Ibarra’s Black and White for violin and pre-recorded sounds. She has also given numerous world premieres of solo and chamber works by John Zorn, and U.S. premieres of pieces by Jacob TV and Helmut Lachenman.

James Moore is a versatile guitarist and multi-instrumentalist. Performing on a wide array of guitars, banjos, mandolins and home-made instruments, James incorporates his classical training and a healthy dose of improvisation, theatrics, and experimentation. James is a founding member and director of Dither, a an electric guitar quartet that has gained international recognition for precision playing and creative programming. Earlier this year he performed as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group at LA's Disney Hall in a program conducted by composer John Adams.
