A night of intimate bowed strings presented in association with Seymour Nights. Immerse yourself in the resonant glow of Kirsty McCahon’s double bass and Véronique Serret’s rare 6-string electric violin.

Set 1: Kirsty McCahon (Double Bass) with Virginia Comerford (Viola)

Kirsty McCahon (double bass) presents a stunning set that transports listeners from the earth, up to birdsong in full flight, before resting back down to the ground while clinging to a sense of timelessness. Beginning with a handful of achingly beautiful Baroque vocal duets and canons, lines that move and weave through each other, voices playing and dancing to pied butcher bird musings from Hollis Taylor to the hauntingly beautiful yet edgy tones of the 6 string violone and finally a coda from Elena Kats-Chernin which literally swells and then drifts away to nothing.

Bach/Palestrina/Locatelli - Duo’s (double bass and viola duets) 10’
Hollis Taylor - Banana Paper (solo bass and tape) 5'
Kate Moore - Icarus (solo bass) 4'
Improvisation on a theme of Francesca Caccinni (violone solo with tape) 4'
Elena Kats-Chernin - Adrift ( bass and viola duet) 6'

Set 2 – Véronique Serret (6-string electric violin)

Véronique Serret struts her stuff on the 6-string electric violin, an unusual and endlessly rich instrument she has been developing a repertoire for over the last few years. In this special set she presents three of her own new works, alongside Berlin-based Cathy Milliken’s heart-wrenching Crie which features Véronique as both violinist and vocalist. Brisbane composer Chris Perren’s A Stolen Satellite creates swirling rhythmic loops over which the live violin soars.

Véronique Serret – Bush Mujik, Watercolour, Runs Deep 12’
Cathy Milliken – Crie 8’
Chris Perren – A Stolen Satellite 10’

Performers:
Kirsty McCahon (double bass)
Kees Boersma (double bass)
Véronique Serret (6-string electric violin)
