The Modern String Quartet is a new project open to collaborators with string musicians who have great affinity to discover the music and sound of the contemporary world. The musicians who collaborate with the Modern String Quartet are all animated by the desire to share music contaminations of different genres and styles, sometimes using electronic instruments and effects as an important element in creating new sounds. Each of them took part and worked for years with string quartets such as Arkè, Kuasar, String island, Eos making their own creative and executive contribution. This common interest and common course has led them to meet and try to express themselves differently using a perfect and centenary writing form like that of the string quartet. In addition to their own original music, the collaborations are broad in spectrum, from ethnic music to jazz, to progressive rock and contemporary classics, without forgetting improvisation, which becomes another motive of creativity and diversity from what is considered the string quartet.
