How to develop and explore a new digital space in which the electric violin meets electronics, video and other means of artistic expression?

Main areas of focus:

1 Music:

Development of new repertoire and improvisations, and extension of the sound palette for electric violin. Development of musical intelligence and aesthetic understanding in the field of electronic music through musical interaction with composers, musicians and programmers.

2 The performance:

Experimentation with the use of video, different concert forms, spaces and venues. The final performance will reflect the experience gained through these experiments.

3 Research:

Research and expansion of knowledge about how the electric violin can interact with technology through experimentation with different software and controllers. The final performance will demonstrate some of the results of this research.
