On Sunday, August 29 at 2 p.m., Cued Up on Q2 presents Missy Mazzoli's instrumental chamber-pop quintet, Victoire. The all-female troupe, comprised of violin, clarinet, keyboards, electronics and double bass, relishes in the intersecting of romantic harmonies and minimalist post-rock odysseys. Never webcast before, the concert was presented by American Composers Orchestra at (Le) Poisson Rouge, where the performance took place on April 7, 2010.

Along with sharing the stage with instrumental post-rock giants such as Tortoise and performing at genre-crushing festivals like Bang on a Can Marathon, individual members have worked with New Music luminaries Helmut Lachenmann, Meredeth Monk, Pierre Boulez and Steve Reich. In doing so, they've secured their position in that unstable enclave where minimalism, dark classical inflections and instrumental rock coexist.

This performance includes material from their well-received first record, A Door into the Dark, and unreleased tracks from their next release, Cathedral City.

Victoire performs Like a Miracle live at the Stone.
