Evolution 1

Evolution 1 is a set of pieces for violin that were recorded over a period of 3 weeks. The works themselves are a blend of musical intuition (experience), planning, and chance. They are one-time creations and have not been edited. The basic premise of the series is an exploration of a single idea until another idea is introduced by chance. Each additional element is explored and either incorporated or discarded. The time scale and rate-of-change is extremely slow. Each piece employs extensive use of extended techniques.

Evolution 1a 14’44
Violin Improvisation – Bowed

Evolution 1b 9’10
Sequential Two-part Violin Improvisation – Plucked

Evolution 1c 15’09
Sequential Three-part Violin Improvisation – Scratched

Seven Words, Seven Worlds is a piece for 12 singers that was recently (Oct. 25th) premiered by OSSIA New Music. Program notes from the premier may be found here.

Please note that the recording begins with two or so minutes of intoning as the singers process into the performance area and is very quiet.
