The bi-coastal A/B Duo, comprised of percussionist Christopher G. Jones (Rochester, NY) and flutist Meerenai Shim (Campbell, CA), is committed to performing a variety of fun, intense and thought-provoking new works. Most of these compositions have been recently written for the A/B Duo and vary wildly in style and instrumentation from djembe and contrabass flute to Nintendo Gameboy and drum set.
Formed in Chicago, A/B Duo has been touring and commissioning new works since 2012. During the 2013-2016 seasons, A/B Duo will proudly premiere 15 freshly commissioned works from Drew Baker, Zack Browning, Brooks Frederickson, Olivia Kieffer, Andrea La Rose, Jenna Lyle, Ned McGowan, Carolyn O’Brien, Matthew Joseph Payne, Brendon Randall-Myers, Ryan Ross Smith, Alan Theisen, Ivan Trevino, Francisco Castillo Trigueros, and Ken Ueno.
A/B Duo's first recording project is a rock and roll and Gameboy infused EP of compositions by Ivan Trevino and Matthew Joseph Payne. "Things We Dream About" was released in December 2013.
