Revien

Revien is a contemporary chamber ensemble consisting of three members of the Georgia Guitar Quartet, with Phil Snyder on cello, Kyle Dawkins on guitars and electronics, and Brian Smith on guitars and electronics. All graduates of the University of Georgia Hugh Hodgson School of Music, the trio embraces the classical repertoire and draws from the energy of rock and pop music as well incorporated into their programs.

Playing in a collection of Athens bands throughout their seventeen years together, the trio is equally at home in rock and chamber music lineups, and creates a compelling program for audiences, incorporating modern tech and prepared enhancements on their instruments - you might hear guitars and cello used as percussion, or guitar strings fitted with found objects to sound more like a sitar or an Indonesian gamelan, for instance.

The trio is regularly featured on NPR's Performance Today. Their most recent album, Dama, consists of all original compositions by the members.

Bent Frequency Duo Project

Percussionist Stuart Gerber and saxophonist Jan Berry Baker are The Bent Frequency Duo Project. Stuart and Jan have commissioned over 20 new works for their duo and have given countless performances of this new repertoire across the US, Mexico, and Europe since 2014.

The first iteration of this project was truly international in scope, including commissions from seven American composers (Robert Scott Thompson, Chris Burns, Devin Maxwell, Jeff Herriott, Roshanne Etezady, Kevin Schlei and Chris Arrell) and two European composers (Vivienne Olive from Germany and Stefano Pierini from Italy). They performed across the East Coast (Worchester, Boston, Storrs, Hartford and New York), the Midwest (Milwaukee, Chicago, Champaign, Oshkosh, Dekalb, Whitewater and multiple cities in Indiana), Texas (Huntsville) and Nuremberg, Germany.

Stuart and Jan have recently released Bent Frequency's debut album on Centaur Records featuring a number of these works.
