Curved Form (No. 11)

Composer Alex Groves is releasing a new EP today, his second. Curved Form (No. 11) for cello and electronics is a collaboration with cellist Gabriella Swallow for whom the work was written, and it takes inspiration from 'the undulating patterns of artist Bridget Riley and the sinuous curved forms of sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Evoking their sense of motion, repetition and form, it creates an all-consuming environment where waves of sound constantly layer, coalesce and dissipate.

Also on the disc are three remixes of Curved Form (No. 11) by Mira Calix, Sarah Davachi and Alex himself, each taking the piece in a different direction.

Curved Form (No. 11) is available on BandCamp.
