Gift of Life / Filario Farinoppo – 12 November 2009

By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  1 Comment

“Gift of Life” is a freely improvising duo consisting of Timothy McCormack on flutes & bassoons and Ray Evanoff on amplified cymbal & objects. They began playing together shortly after meeting at the Uni. Huddersfield in the fall of 2008, where they both are pursuing PhDs in music composition under the direction of Aaron Cassidy. Experienced improvisers, both have a special commitment to exploring and extending the possibilities of their uncommon instruments through an intense involvement with the physicality of sound production; together, they have worked to establish a personal aesthetic which foregrounds this emphasis and combines it with often radical approaches to the formal aspects of duo improvisation. Based in the UK, both are committed experimentalists whose work encompasses a variety of musical forms and other media.
