line upon line percussion is committed to seeking new ways for
percussion instruments to advance contemporary music. In 2011, the
Austin-based trio released a disc of commissioned, homegrown music and
premiered their award winning project, seeing times
are not hidden, a site-specific work for custom chimes. In May 2012,
the group organized Perspective: Xenakis, a two-day festival focused on
the chamber works of Iannis Xenakis. In 2011 and 2012, the trio was
nominated for an Austin Critics' Table Award for
Best Classical Ensemble. The group has received grants from the French
American Cultural Exchange, Chamber Music America Classical
Commissioning Program and the Barlow Endowment.
line upon line maintains educational and outreach roles with the Austin Chamber Music Center and has performed and taught at numerous academic institutions around the country.

The group has previously performed at SXSW, Fast Forward Austin and the International Festival-Institute at Round Top.
