Product Description

Richard Carrick's (b. 1971) music draws inspiration from his French, North African, and British background, his studies in mathematics and philosophy, interest in psychology, and experience as a performer of notated and improvised music. All of his music stems from his roots in chamber music and musical performance but often branches out into the experimental realm to showcase musicality in other aspects of performance. His chamber pieces (Duo Flow, Flow Trio) explore the evolution of musical threads over time as they are passed from one instrument to the next. His solo works ("in flow", Shadow Flow, Moroccan Flow) feature virtuosic and intense acrobatics for the soloist. In Carrick's words, "The cycle as a whole is influenced by Islamic mosaics, Gnawa music of Morocco, Albert Camus' "L'Étranger", and the Flow concept of síkszentmihályi. One of the goals of this cycle was to write music that was focused yet still expansive, that developed new sounds for string instruments, and featured virtuoso performing to achieve new textures and the evolution of these textures through time."


"Constructed as free fantasies, where moment-to-moment activity takes precedence over organizational unity, they articulate small details with energetic gestures--jolting, swooping, lilting rhythms; irregular phrase lengths and unexpected accents; string harmonics, bristling pizzicati, exaggerated bowing, and other tonal/textural effects. But there is also an ever-present clarity of line and dramatic continuity that help the music sound subtly familiar and vigorously new at the same time." --Fanfare Magazine

"...quietly virtuosic and addictive." --Wire Magazine
