New Commissioned Piece for Kronos Quartet

Amon Tobin - New Commissioned Piece for Kronos Quartet

It's no secret that both Amon Tobin & Kronos Quartet have long been in each others' mutual appreciation societies. Kronos provided source material for "Bloodstone" from Amon's 2007 release Foley Rooma track that they went on perform their own interpretation of at some of their shows. They also contributed their interpretation of Foley Room material "Foley Versions" to the Ninja Tune XX box set. And all this collaboration led to one of the best nights of Amon's career last October when he invited Kronos Quartet to open for his ambitious ISAM Live show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley (a night of amazing moments all around, not the least of which was the very first recorded incident of a bra being thrown on stage at Kronos). 

It's with all that that we're excited to announce that Amon has provided a new commissioned piece, V838 Monocerotis, to be played/debuted by Kronos Quartet as part of their forthcoming Kronos At 40 celebrations. Amon joins the likes of Philip Glass, Bryce Dessner (The National), Aleksandra Vrebalov, Dan Deacon, Mary Kouyoumdjian, David T. Little, and others, plus two film scores and a volume of commissioned works published by Boosey & Hawkes.
