This New York-based chamber duo and commissioning venture, was established by the Bang On A Can All-Stars cellist Ashley Bathgate and founding alumna pianist Lisa Moore in 2010.  TwoSense have performed at Bargemusic, National Sawdust, (le) poisson rouge, Rubin Museum, Spectrum, Bang on a Can 25th Anniversary Marathon (World Financial Center),  Roulette, Detroit Institute for the Arts, The Presidio San Francisco, Center for New Music San Francisco, Firehouse12 New Haven, MIT, Wesleyan and Yale Universities as well as in festivals Saratoga Arts NY and Southern Exposure Columbia SC.

TwoSense have released recordings on Albany, Starkland, and Bandcamp. Of their Starkland recording “Prayers Remain Forever” (by Martin Bresnick) Fanfare wrote “both dig deeply into their material…building to a rock-solid conclusion as it brings back the opening material in a new light. They give a powerhouse rendition.”
