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.
