Since sparking a musical partnership in 1998 at the University of California at San Diego, guitarists Colin McAllister and Derek Keller have dedicated themselves to presenting music composed in the 20th and 21st centuries. They have been featured on notable concert series, such as the SoundOn Festival of Modern Music and the New American Music Festival. They are noted for having presented the U.S. premiere of Helmut Lachenmann’s Salut für Caudwell, which led to a remarkable recording of the piece (on Old King Cole) after working closely with the composer.
