  • Christopher Otto violin
  • Austin Wulliman violin
  • John Pickford Richards viola
  • Jay Campbell cello

The JACK Quartet launches Xenakis Day with Ergma, a typically uncompromising study in homophony, before its individual members perform a group of sonorous solo scores and the haunting Hunem-Iduhey, with its opening study in non-vibrato tones. The musical material of ST/4–1, 080262 was generated by a series of compositional algorithms and shaped by Xenakis into a work of intense drama.
