About

“One day, while I was composing the music, this title came into my mind as an inevitability: Aspiration. It is a double CD with four pieces for solo violin, featuring well-renowned violinist Irvine Arditti: Shifting/Drifting for violin and real-time algorithmic transformation, imagE/violin, Aspiration and Kokoro.” – Roger Reynolds

In Shifting/Drifting computer algorithms manipulate the ‘seeds’ of the soloist's performance interactively. The pieces imagE/violin and imAge/violin were originally composed for cellist Alexis Descharmes. While composing for the pair, Reynolds worked closely together with Arditti, as was the the case with Kokoro, inspired by reading D. Suzuki´s Zen and Japanese Culture. In Aspiration, Irvine’s playing is superimposed on the ensemble, with figurative outbursts that serve to bring the listener’s attention back to his role whatever is happening.
