Sean Noonan: A Gambler’s Hand (USA/PL)

A Gambler’s Hand, are suites for amplified string quartet, drum kit/percussion, and storytelling that presents the composers ongoing interest in treating the string quartet as an extension of the drum set.

Noonan's inspirations combine the aesthetics of modern chamber music, improvised new music, storytelling, and experimentalists from the New York Music Scene. At any particular moment, rock grooves lock with insistent string ostinatos, which then morph into spiky counterpoint reminiscent of Bartok.  Noonan narrates his tales from the drum set as if Irish playwright Samuel Beckett was drumming himself.

Adam Roszkowski - violin
Maciej Afanasjew - violin
Adam Debski - viola
Jan Roszkowski - cello
Sean Noonan - composer, drummer, storyteller
