Kristina Warren is an acoustic and multimedia composer, improviser, and researcher based in Providence RI.
Here’s what she has to say about her piece, For soloist and any number of musicians:
“My work takes many forms- from building and performing with unique analog/digital instruments, to composing for and with acoustic chamber ensembles – but generally highlights individual and collective acts of listening and making noise. With text scores, I’m fascinated by the convergence between notation and performance trace. In typical staff-notated music, the score is important, but ultimately it’s the performed sound that defines the music. By contrast, For soloist… *is* a text score. In other words, this is a conceptual and gestural approach to sound, with lots of freedom but still some particular limitations resulting from the text conditions.”
We selected her piece For soloist, from our call for scores and we’ve been having a great time rehearsing it.
