QUINCE'S FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM:
DAVID LANG'S LOVE FAIL

love fail (2012) is a 50-minute meditation created by Pulitzer-Prize-winning post-minimalist American composer David Lang about the timelessness of love that weaves together details from medieval retellings of the story of Tristan and Isolde with stories from more modern sources.

 

On Friday, April 24, 2020, Quince Ensemble will release their 4th studio album: David Lang's love fail on Innova Records.

QUINCE'S THIRD ALBUM: MOTHERLAND

To us, Motherland means our natal home, worthy of love, critique, and support. It represents the terrain of those who identify as women, as mothers of varying types - creators and producers and life-givers and life-sacrificers. Mother-land is both embodiment and inversion of Emily Dickinson’s “Nature, the gentlest mother” - capable of supporting all life, and of obliterating it with forces as simple as a breath of air. 

 

This album features never-before-heard recordings of pieces by Laura Steenberge, Gilda Lyons, Cara Haxo, and Jennifer Jolley.

As long as we have breath left in us, we will sing our gratitude, our love, our frustration, and our hopes. T
here is no greater privilege.

SCENES & LINES - A COLLABORATIVE ALBUM WITH QUINCE AND AUSTIN NEW MUSIC CO-OP

In May of 2017 Austin New Music Co-op composed four pieces that premiered on their 2016 collaboration with Quince, and we couldn't be happier with how they came out! 

 

The works by Brent Fariss, Laura Brackney, Travis Weller, and Andrew Stoltz cover a broad range -- blending novel and traditional instrumentation. On September 26th of 2017, ANMC released this studio recording in letterpress printed packaging through Willow Street Recordings.

QUINCE COLLABORATION WITH MAN FOREVER, TIGUE, AND LAURIE ANDERSON

The music of drummer John Colpitts as Man Forever is explorative, innovative, and fearless.  A musician and composer equally versed in the disparate musical languages of DIY rock, improvisation, and contemporary classical, Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) has made an album that defies genre classification.

 

Propulsive, elaborate drum arrangements (created with TIGUE Percussion) remain essential to Man Forever - on the songs of Play What They Want, they are augmented by voice and melody with contributions from Quince Ensemble, Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, and Mary Lattimore to name a few.  Play What They Want represents the culmination of 25 years of musical engagement by one of New York’s most acclaimed percussionists.
