Do strings store information? This is the idea that inspired Liza Lim’s latest string quartet “String Creatures”, which is now given its German premiere at Musikfest Berlin by the JACK Quartet. The musicians also function as a multiple body connected by the sound of their strings in Helmut Lachenmann’s “Grido” and Iannis Xenakis’s “Tetras”.
