Monica Germino violin / electric violin / voice
Frank van der Weij sound
Collaborating with composers from all over the world, the American-born, Amsterdam-based violinist Monica Germino is a pioneer in new techniques. Her defiance of tradition has led her to seek out and encourage the adventurous, the daring and the new. This latest programme showcases the younger generation of composers, with newly commissioned works for violin and sound engineer, by six composers from five countries. In DEVIATION, defined as ‘departure from a standard or norm', Monica challenges herself, sound engineer Frank van der Weij and the composers to be true deviants, to ignore any supposed limits or boundaries, to transform sound, execute unconventional feats and exploit new technologies for the benefit of new music.
‘Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible'
‘Monica Germino's virtuosity was exhilarating'
Co-produced by hcmf// and the Gaudeamus Music Week / Music Center the Netherlands; supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL and the Eduard van Beinum Foundation
