ROGUE COLLECTIVE, based in the Washington DC area, explores "the gap" between classical and popular music through collaboration, original composition, improvisation and performance. RC takes the form of a string quartet—a configuration of instruments that has been at the forefront of music making for centuries—and re-imagines it for a contemporary audience. RC uses the language of their ipods—classical, hip-hop, rock, jazz, soul, and electronic music—to create improvisatory scores and new, vibrantly composed string quartets.
