TwoSense is a NY-based chamber duo and commissioning venture. Established by the Bang on a Can cellist Ashley Bathgate and alumna pianist Lisa Moore in 2010. TwoSense perform new cello and piano works paired with mainstream classics. 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 frequently expand their creative boundaries collaborating with other musicians and artists. During the 2011-12 New York City season they appeared at Bargemusic, the Rubin Museum and the Bang on a Can 25th Anniversary Marathon at the World Financial Center.
