SCO musicians in recital as part of the St Andrews University Music Centre's concert programme.
Aisling O’Dea (SCO Violin), Tom Hunter (Vibraphone) and Jeremy Thurlow (laptop) showcase contemporary works by Philip Glass and Jeremy Thurlow.
Strung Out bridges live performance, composition and improvisation. Taking its name from Philip Glass’ genre changing composition, the concert’s repertoire juxtaposes minimalism and complexity, celebrating new approaches and reactions to performance, and the technology that influences it. This is a celebration of the violin, a much loved orchestral instrument whose flexible potential keeps it in the forefront of contemporary composers’ minds.
Born in Dublin, Ireland, Aisling began to play the violin at the age of nine. She went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music, London with Professor Maurice Hasson, completing a BMus (Performance) Degree in 1995 and then went on to complete two years of further study at the “Hans Eisler” Hochschule für Musik in Berlin with Professors Stefan Piacard and Michael Erxleben.
