Karen Bentley Pollick: Visonuality
International new music violinist and Palo Alto native Karen Bentley Pollick returns to CCRMA after recent performances at the Music of Changes festival in Klaipeda, Lithuania; SPECTRUM-NYC; Wayward Music Series in Seattle; and Alive: New Music at The Dairy Center in Boulder. She will be presenting a diverse program fusing music and videos from Lithuania, Germany, France, Venezuela, and America. A "visonual" work is like a living picture, a visual-sound poem in which the viewer is invited to enter.
The program will feature Žibuoklė Martinaitytė's Serenity Diptychs, with ethereal Baltic harmonies; Johann Sebastian Bach's Ciaccona and Dominique de Williencourt's Mont Ararat, both with Stuart Diamond's contemplative and insightful videos; and Sonic Talisman, the new piece by Franco-Venezuelan composer and visiting scholar at Stanford Servio Marin – an exploration of visual and aural interrelations, studying and analyzing the physics of sound by itself, as well as the role it plays inside the context of several music repertory languages.
