CODE Quartet came together with the equal goals of composing and improvising in a chordless-quartet setting. The primary motivation for the formation of the group has been to build on the freedom of expression pioneered by Ornette Coleman’s seminal group of the 1950s, with two horns interacting with acoustic bass and drums. They prioritize the idea each voice within the collective is given equal weight, blurring the boundaries between lead and supporting voices, between frontline instruments, and the rhythm section. The group sculpts their original compositions, orchestrated exclusively for CODE Quartet, weighing heavily on their improvisatory reactions to the written material.
