A veritable force on the Portland music scene for over a decade, The Quadraphonnes is a saxophone quartet that unapologetically flaunts female power. They play a wide range of styles, display their impressive instrumental technique, and have no qualms about showcasing their feminine stage presence. On their own, they have two full-length albums, plus their newest collaboration with composer Andrew Durkin under PJCE Records, “Five Pointed Star”.
Andrew Durkin is a composer and writer living in Portland, Oregon, and the author of Decomposition: A Music Manifesto, published by Pantheon in late 2014. Best known as the leader of the West Coast-based Industrial Jazz Group, Durkin, in Decomposition, poses tough questions about the genesis of musical creation, especially in the digital age. He explodes the age-old concept of composition as the work of individual genius, arguing instead that in both its authorship and reception by listeners, music is a fundamentally collaborative experience. How we listen, Durkin maintains, might have as much power to change music as music might have to change how we listen.

She is professional vocalist for OCP and Resonance Ensemble and is the Founder/Director of the Music Performance and Technology degree at Clackamas Community College in Portland, OR.
