Our latest release features compositions by Zoë Keating and Sarah Lipstate:


The Low End String Quartet was formed by composer / guitarist Jonathan Matis. The instrumentation differs from the standard string quartet model, adding a bass, dropping a violin, and swapping a guitar where the viola should be. This "new and improved" string quartet lineup is much better suited to clubs and bars than the classical model, and is better equipped for rumbling your ribcage.
