Imagining the impossible and wilding imaginarium of intangible sounds timbres colours gestures... re-imagining possibilities for temporal and spatial dissemination of events and happenings... geographical re-exploration and re-invention of the instrument... and shaping it all into one (im)possible aesthetic experience.
Some of the aspects that could be explored through collaboration include time-space of music, temporalities of sound and its existence, extended musical material, body movement and gesture, their roles and use, and other themes appropriate to the concerns of the composer.
By presenting these new works in the context with pieces from established violin repertoire, the desire is to demonstrate that the solo violin repertoire is far from having exploited all the possibilities of the instrument, and to emphasise the tradition of an instrument whose nature and practice is in constant development/evolution.
