Modulus Quartet champions a diverse range of music by living composers. Drawing on its collective experience, the quartet seeks out music of an individual style, developing creative relationships with composers and artists. The quartet explores new ways of presenting music, performing in unusual venues and incorporating visual arts and multi-media technology.
Modulus are currently collaborating with composers Richard Norris, Eliot Lloyd Short, Terry Davies, Ash Madni, Veera Lummi and Matthew Slater for their debut album, 12 Seconds of Light, scheduled for release in May 2017. Their first UK tour to promote the album will take place in May 2017 and will take in a variety of unusual locations including Honister Slate Mine in the Lake District and Carnglaze Cavern in Cornwall.
The quartet is also working with the Charlie Pyne Jazz Quartet under the name Plank creating original compositions for octet. Plank are working with composer Terry Davies on a live score for Man Ray's silent film Les Mysteres du Chateau du De.
