Illumination Piano Music of Victoria Bond

Illuminations on Byzantine Chant (2021)
This work represents over twenty years of creative collaboration with pianist Paul Barnes. I wanted to select byzantine hymns that reflected the wide emotional range and spiritual message of Judaism and Christianity. The musical roots are very similar and this piece highlights those similarities.

BUZZ

One of the things that strike me in particular about the insect sounds is that they are so unexpectedly expressive. In the past I had thought of insects as being creatures without true emotions, but these “songs” are deeply emotional. Maybe it’s just anthropomorphic to identify human emotions with those of insects, but I’d like to give them the benefit of the doubt. This is what I am really after with the piece – bringing out what is most expressive in the language of these beasts. I have not manipulated the sounds in any way, being averse to making them sound even more “strange” and exotic than they already are. The commentary on the viola is a dialogue, a conversation suggesting a reaction to those emotions.
