"gibbons vs. Gibbons" - listen to a recording of the Odin Quartet premiere

The Odin String Quartet premiered gibbons vs. Gibbons on March 1 at Array Space in Toronto.

Not only did they capture the sound of singing gibbon apes in their tone, and the finicky string effects needed to create the sense of Renaissance music (by Orlando Gibbons, naturally) being swatted around by these mischievous primates, but they made it funny!

This piece is planned for professional recording by the Odin Quartet for their all-Canadian debut album, in the coming year.
