Ribbon & Strings
A piece that explores kinetic energy and bowing. Electric current is created by pulling long ribbons to drive DC motors that power hand-held synthesisers. The string players follow similar phrases and bowing to the 'ribbon' players to create a continuous evolving texture. Featuring Jackie Shave (Britten Sinfonia) and Robert Irvine (Red Note Ensemble), Dartington, August 2013.
An additional performance of this piece took place at Bloc, Autumn St, London, 15.11.14 as part of the Nonclassical 10 year anniversary event.
