Third Angle New Music
Third Angle New Music’s mission is to perform and record contemporary music’s chamber music masterworks of the 20th and 21st centuries while commissioning new works from regional and nationally recognized composers. Its bold and innovative programming, high artistic standards, and tireless efforts to bring 20th- and 21st-century music to a diverse audience have earned it abundant critical acclaim. The group recently made its highly successful NYC debut at the prestigious Bang on a Can Marathon.
With the organization’s focus on creating a soundtrack for our time, we perform the works of such modern-day legends as Steve Reich, John Cage, Morton Feldman, and David Lang, striking new compositional powerhouses such as LJ White, Julian Day, and Ruben Naeff, and brilliant NW composers including Lou Harrison, David Schiff, and Jay Derderian. Third Angle concerts are tours de force uniting music with architecture, dance, theatre, visual arts, film, electronics, poetry and spoken word. We frequently collaborate with organizations such as Portland Art Museum, Hand2Mouth Theatre, and BodyVox Dance.
A Third Angle performance is anything but ordinary.
