Ars Nova Workshop presents “Music for Four Guitars,” a startlingly minimalist new composition by guitarist Bill Orcutt, founding member of infamous noise rockers Harry Pussy, at Solar Myth on April 29, 2024.

San Francisco-based guitarist and composer Bill Orcutt presents his latest project, an all-electric Guitar Quartet performing the music from his 2022 LP “Music for Four Guitars,” an album which Pitchfork describes as “a rigidly structured quartet that weaves tiny rhythmic phrases into expansive tapestries, drawing on the tenets of early minimalism and New York guitar groups like Glenn Branca Ensemble.” Featuring an all-star team of guitarists Orcutt, Wendy Eisenberg, Ava Mendoza, and Shane Parish, the ensemble will present the music in an expanded live format that will combine intricate composition with no holds barred improvisation. In 2023, the Guitar Quartet toured extensively performing at high profile venues and festivals such as Le Guess Who Festival (NL), Kings Place (UK), and Big Ears Festival (US). “Four Guitars Live” a live collection from select performances was released March 2024.
