A brutal, loud and violent piece
I am in the process of writing a new piece for award winning violinist Amalia Hall. It will be brutal, loud, violent and menacing. My initial ideas are to compose this piece for amplified violin, prepared piano, percussion and FX. I’ve been listening to the new Tom Waits album and have been very captivated by the sheer violence of “Hell broke Luce”. Keen to explore themes of brutality and menace. Amalia is a beautiful person both in appearance and in character and the idea of of the ‘waif” delivering the unexpected is an appealing idea.
