JACK Quartet performs Georg Friedrich Haas’s “String Quartet No. 9.” in the dark

changed our perception of performance and sound with a show played in complete darkness. Through extensive collaboration with the National Sawdust staff, we were able to safely create a pitch-black visual vacuum in our space, allowing JACK’s humming strings to take on sonic shapes and movements that would be impossible to achieve with visual stimuli. As the days get shorter, take a moment to ruminate on darkness and what we can discover within. Turn off the lights, close your eyes, and take in the recording from this once-in-a-lifetime performance.
