TwoSense is a New York-based chamber duo and commissioning venture, established by the Bang On A Can All-Stars cellist Ashley Bathgate and founding alumna pianist Lisa Moore in 2010. The duo has been described as the “new music equivalent of a special ops team” (New York Magazine), an “excellent duo” and “eloquent new-music interpreters” (New York Times). TwoSense have performed at Bargemusic, National Sawdust, (le) poisson rouge, Rubin Museum, Spectrum, Bang on a Can 25th Anniversary Marathon (World Financial Center), Roulette, Detroit Institute for the Arts, The Presidio San Francisco, Firehouse12 New Haven, MIT, Wesleyan and Yale Universities as well as at festivals in Saratoga NY and Columbia SC. TwoSense have commissioned over 14 new works – including pieces by composers Samuel Carl Adams, Martin Bresnick, Ryan Brown, Paul Dresher, Stephen Feigenbaum, Daniel Felsenfeld, Paul Kerekes, Amy Beth Kirsten, Hannah Lash, Ingram Marshall, Kate Moore, Jack Perla, and Daniel Wohl – with grants from Meet the Composer, Barlow, and Fromm Foundations. TwoSense have released recordings on Albany, Starkland, and Bandcamp. Of their Starkland recording “Prayers Remain Forever” (by Martin Bresnick) Fanfare wrote “both dig deeply into their material…building to a rock-solid conclusion as it brings back the opening material in a new light. They give a powerhouse rendition.”
