Strings Magazine contributor Shelton Clark has a wonderful new interview and feature on Tracy Silverman and his new Delos recording, Between the Kiss and the Chaos at allthingsstrings.com:
“Having debuted new works by composers John Adams and Terry Riley in recent years, six-string electric violinist Tracy Silverman focuses on his own compositions on his recent album Between the Kiss and the Chaos (Delos/Naxos). The CD is broken into two sections: the first is a concerto for electric violin and string quartet; the second, Axis and Orbits, showcases Silverman’s ambitious, experimental exploration of electronic loops and irregular time signatures. For inspiration, Silverman turned not to music, but fine art: the title track is a five-part concerto inspired by famous works of visual art, including Michelangelo’s David and Georgia O’Keeffe’s Red Poppy. … In that spirit, Silverman’s work also captures the buoyancy of Matisse’s La Danse, but viscerally echoes the dissonant, distorted vision of Picasso’s Guernica as well.” —Shelton Clark, Strings
