World premier of "folds"
The performance takes as its starting point a cantata by the remarkable 17th–century composer/vocalist Barbara Strozzi, which is fragmented and dovetailed with Rosenberger’s audiovisual response. Ghostly projections and evocative electroacoustic sounds drawn from paper complement Cuckson’s expressive playing. The artists then “fold the page” and turn to the current era with an interpretation of recent music played and chosen by Cuckson herself to reflect further on the notation and transmission of ideas.
