Elliot Simpson, James Moore, & Teodora Stepančić - 'guitars, streets, resonances'
Guitarists James Moore (electric guitar) and Elliot Simpson (classical guitar) and composer Teodora Stepančić (sine tones) perform Stepančić’s piece - their album’s title track. Two guitars quietly play a melody together; one keeps repeating it, never the same... the other gradually drifts away, getting lost in resonance... sine tones gently add harmony... a door opens and the guitars are in the street... the melody is slowly forgotten.

String Noise: Dark, Light (2017) Jessie Cox

This piece is an exploration of this - sometimes harmonious and sometimes antagonistic - dichotomy, through the combining of extremely bright and dark colors, and through setting them in a dialogue with each other.
