ResearchWorks: East and West in Conversation
East and West in Conversation: Embodying sound through the violin
Dr Preetha Narayanan (Guildhall School)
What does the confluence of Indian and Western Classical improvisation reveal about the expression and aesthetic of each style and that of the resulting new creation? Drawing on her bi-musical background and recent artistic research with collaborator Dr David Dolan, Dr Preetha Narayanan (Guildhall School of Music & Drama) demonstrates and discusses how she mediates these two aesthetic worlds physically and sonically through the violin. The event will be streamed from Guildhall School with live performance and improvisation from the duo.
