Viola, Flute, and Harp trio. Brooklyn-based janus was formed in 2002 with the goal of creating and presenting new repertoire for the trio through commissioning projects and works-in-process collaborations. Named after Janus, the Roman god whose double-faced image peers into the past and future, the trio maintains the established tradition for the instrumentation while breaking new ground into unexplored sonic frontiers. Beginning with Debussy and including Toru Takemitsu, André Jolivet, Sophia Gubaidulina and Kaija Saariaho, composers have been allured by this intriguing combination of something bowed, something blown, and something plucked. janus is a New Amsterdam Records artist and can be heard on their debut release i am not. They are also featured on Gravity and Air – a release from fellow New Amsterdam Records artist, Andrew McKenna Lee. They are currently working on their next album which is due for release in Fall 2013.
