The Letter String Quartet reveal yet another stunning single lifted from their forthcoming debut album with Marita Dyson on ‘Momento Mori’
From collaborating with Australian and international composers, poets and visual artists, to generating transcendental improvised performances, The Letter String Quartet have recorded with Jen Cloher, Augie March, Alice Humphries, Andrew Batterham and Richard J Frankland. The highly sought after musicians have presented world premiere commissions by composers Bree van Reyk, Ned Colette, Yana Alana, Wally Gunn and Erik DeLuca, completed tours with Laura Jean, and recorded with Mick Harvey. In an Australian first, the band were invited to perform with Gang of Youths at the debut MTV Unplugged Australia in 2018, and select TLSQ members have also performed at Supersense Festival of the Ecstatic with esteemed international artists John Cale and Spiritualized.
Outside of the quartets collaborations, the quartet have presented their own concert series at Melbourne Recital Centre, Abbotsford Convent, Next Wave, Festival of Live Art, Metropolis New Music Festival, Inland Concert Series, and the Adelaide Cabaret Festival as well as regular performances with The Orbweavers.
