As part of the Kronos Quartet's residency at the Barbican in January 2012, Music Sales composers Missy Mazzoli, Terry Riley and Michael Gordon, amongst others, will receive a number of performances, including two UK premières.

The first concert, entitled Made in America, is on 24th January and will feature Riley's Another Secret eQuation, performed by the Kronos Quartet and the Trinity Laban Chamber Choir.

Two days later on the 26th the concert will centre around reactions to the 9/11 atrocities in a programme originally devised for the fifth anniversary. Gordon's The Sad Park, based upon recordings of schoolchildren talking about their experiences of events, will form the core of the concert while other contributions will highlight the global response from eleven different countries.
