WorksStill Juniper Snow
beneath an ocean of air
Philip Thomas (piano)
Sarah-Jane Summers (fiddle)
The three compositions presented on Bozzini+ represent diverse aesthetic approaches and working methods. Bryn Harrisonís Piano Quintet features rapid, tangled, filigree cycles and not-quite-repeating loops across its nearly hourlong duration, particularly through its dense, intricate piano writing. Continuing Harrisonís interest in the role of memory in our temporal perception of music, these cycles are more varied than in his previous work Ė they are layered and intertwined, presented forwards, backwards, often at the same time or at subtly slower or faster rates to produce a multi-dimensional view of time passing. Mary Bellamyís beneath an ocean of air draws its inspiration from the artwork of James Turrell, and specifically his Deer Shelter Skyspace from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Bellamy creates a musical analogue that replicates the experience of light and air inside of Turrellís sculpture through high, untethered whistles, flickers, wisps and slides, created through a collection of novel performance techniques developed in conjunction with the work's performers. Finally, Monty Adkins' Still Juniper Snow is and electroacoustic reworking of instrumental material composed for Summers and the Bozzini Quartet inspired by the Norwegian landscape where Summers lives as well as the Scottish and Norwegian folk traditions she blends in her work. Adkins takes these audio documents as a starting point and reuses, alters, effaces, and obfuscates the original material, extending freezing and stretching it into a texture that becomes suspended, glacial, and timeless.
Bozzini+ celebrates the longstanding relationship between the quartet and Huddersfield. They have been a regular presence at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival since 2002, including extended residencies at hcmf// from 2011-14 for their Composerís Kitchen programme for emerging composers.
