As a recipient of the 2022/23 Music Current Commission Award my piece Calanchi receives its premiere at this year’s Festival at the Project Arts Centre in Dublin.
“Calanchi” frames a series of musical objects, or musical thoughts for piano and guitar, that investigate concavity, erosion, friction, pressure and dynamic voids in sound, as well as the chromatic qualities of these two chordophones. The premiere of the piece is performed by Izumi Kimura (piano) and Shane Latimer (electric guitar).
In the context of the festival I partecipate to the panel discussion “Beyond Pitch: perspectives on new music composition methods” along with the composers Francis Heery, Michael Maierhof, Natacha Diels, the pianist Izumi Kimura, and the visual artist Jaki Irvine.
