Mari Kimura, violin: New and Recent Works

Friday, March 2, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
CCRMA, The Knoll


Following CCRMA's Open House, virtuoso composer/violinist/technologist Mari Kimura will present a concert of new and recent works on the CCRMA Stage.

Mari Kimura is at the forefront of violinists who are extending the technical and expressive capabilities of the instrument. As a performer, composer, and researcher, she has opened up new sonic worlds for the violin. Notably, she has mastered the production of pitches that sound up to an octave below the violin’s lowest string without retuning. This technique, which she calls Subharmonics, has earned Mari considerable renown in the concert music world and beyond. She is also a pioneer in the field of interactive computer music, and she has earned international acclaim as a soloist and recitalist in both standard and contemporary repertoire.
