PRISM Quartet's Center-funded project Color Theory will commission new works by Guggenheim Fellow Steven Mackey and Berlin prize recipient Ken Ueno, which will pair the saxophone with a wide range of percussion instruments, in order to investigate the concept of "musical color." Included in the project is a series of performances, lectures, and workshops that investigate the concept of "musical color."
