Colours of Life and
Fiction (for marimba and viola) Richard
Arecibo (for marimba) Alexis Kirke
Queen Canute (clarinet and electronics) Núria Bonet
While Abbott explored the relationship between colours and sounds to write Colours of Life and Fiction inspired by the River Dart in Devon, Kirke composed Arecibo with DNA information sent from Puerto Rico’s Arecibo Observatory to a distant star constellation in search for extra-terrestrial life. Bonet’s Queen Canute explores the musical structures that can be found in animal behaviour in a duet for clarinet and seagulls.
