Airborne Dances

composer
2014

 
Airborne Dances was written in Spring 2014 and we decided as a novelty to multitrack Kerenza on different violins to create the string section (with the added help of four additional musicians on violas, cello and double bass). The experiment took place at Air Edel studios where we set out the studio as if to record a live string section. Kerenza played every single violin line on a different seat, playing a different violin for each part, thereby creating a totally unique sound. She was kindly loaned a Stradavari, a Guadagnini, a Goffriller, a Grancino and a Fendt by violin dealers Ingles and Hayday.
