Notes de programme :
Crimson began life in 2004 as a piece for two singers, three dancers and three instruments. The scenario was developed jointly with the choreographer Harriet Macauley to abstractly convey the emotions involved in a love triangle in which no one gets what they want. We chose to tell the story with four different texts in four archaic languages, each of which tells a different aspect of the same, archetypal story. Though the music had been composed and rehearsals got underway, the dancers were unable to stay with the project and I was left with about 8 minutes of music and no prospect of performance. Fast-forward two years. Having become increasingly interested in film as a medium for art, I decided that it would be a good idea to rewrite Crimson as a soundtrack for a silent film, an idea I proposed to the Cinematography Society at the University of York. Nezih Savaskan took up the project, and spent a year shooting footage, while I completely rewrote the score, keeping the best of what I had written two years earlier, while adding material and reworking it to suit my current artistic ideas.The piece was premiered on 6 May 2006, accompanied by Nezih Savaskan’s film. However, I do not view that as the definitive version of the piece. The score is finished, but I envisage that this piece could be performed with any number of different accompaniments: dance, film, or anything else.

Two films explore the experience of hearing gamelan music in Solo, one of the traditional cultural capitals of Central Java.

The first film immerses the viewer into the sights and sounds of the Sekaten festival, hearing this ancient music in the broader cultural context where old and new worlds collide, while the second presents impressions of the srimpi muncar, an exquisite ritual dance of the royal court.

Over the weekend, I went to the first performance of the Bicycle Opera Project. I've been blogging about this super-cool project on my website for the last couple weeks. This was partly self serving, since they're performing a piece of mine. But it was also because I just really dig what they're doing: biking across Southern Ontario, performing contemporary Canadian opera in unexpected places like cafes, art galleries, barns and parks.
