Percussion Study IV ('Exoskeleton") for viola alla chitarra "Exoskeleton," for viola 'alla chitarra' is also my "Percussion Study IV." My series of "Percussion Studies" attempt to create a set of pieces for the acoustic guitar that have in common an unusual playing technique called the "Tapping Technique." This technique enables me to intersperse a set of unique percussive sounds and noises performed over the guitar's body and executed mostly with bare hands. For this purpose, it is necessary to ensure that percussive sounds and noises could be performed with the same flexibility as ordinary notes. In "Exoskeleton" (which means the outer shell of insects) my idea was to "export" the "Tapping Technique" to the viola's morphological context. The idea behind such exchange is to provoke a motoric break with the expected technique of the instrument, allowing for a new way to play and hear the instrument's sounds. It is not a substitution that weakens the technical potential of the instrument but a way to re potentialize its acoustic possibilities. You can hear pizzicato sounds played at speeds never heard before in traditional viola music. My intention when creating this piece was to deal with the mobility of musicianship, more than with the pre-determined, assigned role of the musician. Thus, this piece can only be played by a guitarist. The 'Percussion Studies Project' is something larger, in my view, than a series of studies. It is a complete insight into compositional procedures that uses the guitar (and the guitarist) as it's ...

Graupner - Viola d'Amore Suite in D Minor GWV426 - Mov 1&2/7 CHRISTOPH GRAUPNER (1683 - 1760) Suite for viola d'amore strings, and basso continuo in D minor GWV 426 1. Ouverture 2. Rondeau Performed by L'Ensemble des Idees heureuses Featuring Helene Plouffe, viola d'amore Directed by Genevieve Soly *Christoph Graupner was a German harpsichordist and composer of high Baroque music who lived and worked at the same time as Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann and George Frideric Handel. Born in Hartmannsdorf near Kirchberg in Saxony, Graupner received his first musical instruction from his uncle, an organist named Nicolaus Kuester. Graupner went to the University of Leipzig where he studied law (as did many composers of the time), and then completed his musical studies with Johann Kuhnau, the cantor of the Thomaskirche (St. Thomas Church). In 1705 Graupner left Leipzig to play the harpsichord in the orchestra of the Hamburg Opera under the direction of Reinhard Keiser, alongside a young violinist named Handel. In addition to playing the harpsichord, Graupner composed three operas in Hamburg in collaboration with Keiser, a popular composer of operas in Germany. In 1709 Graupner accepted a post at the court of Hesse-Darmstadt and in 1711 became the court orchestras Hofkapellmeister (court chapel master). Graupner spent the rest of his career at the court in Hesse-Darmstadt, where his primary responsibilities were to provide music for the court chapel. He wrote music for nearly half a century, from 1709 to 1754, when he became ...

Bill Viola - Ocean without a shore As seen in Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria The work was inspired by a poem by 20th century Senegalese poet and storyteller Birago Diop: Hearing things more than beings, listening to the voice of fire, the voice of water. Hearing in wind the weeping bushes, sighs of our forefathers. The dead are never gone: they are in the shadows. The dead are not in earth: they're in the rustling tree, the groaning wood, water that runs, water that sleeps; they're in the hut, in the crowd, the dead are not dead. The dead are never gone, they're in the breast of a woman, they'ree in the crying of a child, in the flaming torch. The dead are not in the earth: they're in the dying fire, the weeping grasses, whimpering rocks, they're in the forest, they're in the house, the dead are not dead. Bill Viola's Ocean without a shore, which takes its title from the Andalucian Sufi mystic Ibn Arabi (1165–1240), explores the threshold between life and death, or as the artist has stated, 'the presence of the dead in our lives'. The installation is emblematic of Viola's considered attention to human beings undergoing various states of transformation and renewal. In the installation, three video screens become surfaces for the manifestation of images of the dead attempting to re-enter our world. The physical threshold through which the figures pass is not a digital effect, but actually a 'sheet' of cascading water. www.ngv.vic.gov.au

Lady GaGa: Poker Face - VIOLA TRIO COVER (split screen) This video is featured in a commercial promoting the 52nd Grammy Awards on CBS ... also seen here: Lady GaGa : Poker Face - VIOLA TRIO COVER (split screen) * "HQ" --- Make sure you watch in "High Quality" This is the 11th video in my continuing series of classicalized popular music. The song was requested by so many people its hard to point the finger at any one. The original video of the song may be seen here: This performance is the 6th of my split screen videos where I play with myself, and the 2nd where I play a trio with myself. It's all about the viola this time, just like Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.6, a concerto for strings, yet it features no violin parts. I steal my ideas from the masters of course. To do this video, I listened to the original song and by ear wrote out a sheet music score, then arranged it as a trio for 3 violas, and then performed it. I recorded each part separately. I was able to sync up and mix the 3 parts on my computer with a sound wave editor. To do the split screen, I used AviSynth (scripting based video editing and effects utility) in combination with VirtualDubMod (a free video editing utility) to sync up and render the two videos into a single split screen video. The sound then had to be synced to the 3 videos playing simultaneously and properly mixed. My AviSynth script for this video: viola1 = crop(AVISource("N:\PokerFace\VIOLA_1.avi"),256,0,-60,0) viola2 = crop(AVISource("N:\PokerFace\VIOLA_2.avi ...
"The Passing" Bill Viola
Bill Viola - The Greeting (1995) Born in New York in 1951, Bill Viola is one of the world's leading video artists. He has been making video art since 1970, when the first portable cameras and recorders became available. His work has ranged from single videotapes to immersive architectural video installations including video projections, sound and sometimes physical objects. Deeply involved in Buddhism, Viola's preoccupations have always been the inner or spiritual-self and the boundaries of consciousness. Since the death of his parents and birth of his children in the 1990s his work has often drawn on his own life to explore recurring themes of birth, death, self-discovery and personal transformation.

He has been instrumental in the establishment of video as a vital form of contemporary art, and in so doing has helped to greatly expand its scope in terms of technology, content, and historical reach.

Bill Viola - An Ocean Without a Shore This was staged in a tiny chapel in Venice. It was possibly the smallest chapel I have ever seen. The Altar and the two flanking walls had a video screen that fitted the original sculpture, so instead of a painting, there was a video. The effect was incredible. My other video for Venice is available here, also ejayhart - a lot of images from the same trip.

Telemann - Andante "Concerto for Viola" Ladislav Kyselak, Viola Georg Philipp Telemann was a German Baroque music composer and multi-instrumentalist, born in Magdeburg. Self-taught in music, he studied law at the University of Leipzig. Often described as the most prolific composer in history (at least in terms of surviving oeuvre), he was a contemporary of Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi and a lifelong friend of George Frideric Handel. While in the present day Bach is generally thought of as the greater composer, Telemann was more widely renowned for his musical abilities during his lifetime. Telemann traveled widely, absorbing various musical styles and incorporating them into his own compositions. He is known for writing concertos for unusual combinations of instruments, such as multiple violas, trumpets, oboes, or harpsichords. He held a series of important musical positions, culminating in that of music director of the five largest churches in Hamburg, from 1720 until his death in 1767.
