New York City-based flute and percussion duo, Gemini (Kristen McGuire, flute, and Rob Guilford, percussion), was founded in 2015 with the mission to bridge the gap of traditional flute and percussion repertoire. We commission compact works that explore the full spectrum of tonality and timbre between the two contrasting instruments by composers of diverse backgrounds with the common goal of creating music that inspires audiences.
Gemini's latest project is leading a consortium to commission electroacoustic composer, Quinn Collins. Visit Quinn's dedicated webpage to learn more and to sign on as a co-commissioner with an option of two commitment phases for the project.
In previous seasons, Gemini has commissioned works by Brooklyn-based Trinidadian composer, Kendall Williams, Queens-based Australian composer, Wally Gunn, and presented the New York premiere of Brooks Frederickson's Breathing Bridge.
