line upon line, the Austin-based percussion trio formed in 2009 by Adam Bedell, Cullen Faulk, and Matthew Teodori, will perform a program of new works for percussion trio by Stanford composers Constantin Basica, Julie Herndon, Chris Lortie, Jessie Marino, Charlie Sdraulig, Davor Branimir Vincze, and Andrew Watts.

The group’s in-house creative project, seeing times are not hidden, won top prize at the 2011 Music in Architecture-Architecture in Music Symposium at the University of Texas at Austin. The work involves over 1000 glass, metal, and hardwood chimes suspended from the three arches of Waller Creek Bridge. In April 2013, line upon line gave the North American premiere of Hugues Dufourt’s massive evening-length masterpiece, Erewhon, using nearly 150 percussion instruments. The group’s self-presented concert series, now entering its fourth year, was listed as one of the Top 10 Dance/Classical Music Treasures of 2014 by the Austin Chronicle. Its 2015–16 opener, soft, received an honorable mention in the most recent version of the award. Lumen, a 2016 collaborative project commissioned by Andrea Ariel Dance Theatre, received a specially created Site for Sore Eyes Award by the Austin Critics’ Table "for invigorating collaboration of dance and music in site-specific performance."
