For viola, backing track, harmonica and video
Viola: Adam Maha
Harmonica and backing track: Jeremy Mayall
Musically this piece is inspired by the composer’s love of Blues music. A lot of Blues tells stories of lonely journeys, catching rides on the trains, and often powerful sadness. This piece aims to explore this soulful sound through the solo viola, combined with the sounds of blues harmonica and electronic manipulation. This piece explores the boundaries between Blues music, 20th Century Chamber music, soundscape and electronic dance music.
