Artist: Sarah Fraser-Raff
Song: The Beginning Of Infinity, 3rd movement [composer: Jeremy Bellaviti]
Recorded at The Music Gallery (Emergents III), April 8, 2016.Sarah Fraser-Raff - The Beginning Of Infinity [3rd mvt]
The second half of this Alex Samaras-curated showcase saw violinist Sarah Fraser-Raff play this brand new piece, composed by Jeremy Bellaviti especially for the event. The music was inspired and shaped by the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics in the David Deutsch book from which the piece has taken its title. Over five movements, Fraser-Raff managed to explore a lot of terrain without the piece getting showy or concerned with merely technical aspects. A sole musical voice in the darkened and hushed space of the Music Gallery's santuary, this was quite entrancing.
[This year's Emergents series concludes on Thursday, May 26th. Curated by Ben Dietschi, the night will match the Kiri Koto Ensemble with a set of music performed on Boomwhackers (yes, those plastic tubed people band together at sporting events).]
