Artistes Cassandra Miller

Cassandra Miller (1976) est une compositrice canadienne vivant à Londres, au Royaume-Uni, et est directrice associée de la composition à la Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Ses compositions écrites (About Bach, Duet for cello and orchestra, Philip the Wanderer, etc.) explorent la transcription comme un processus créatif, par lequel les qualités vocales expressives de la musique préexistante sont à la fois magnifiées et transfigurées. Ses compositions non notées (Thanksong, So Close, Tracery) prennent la forme de collaborations élargies avec des musiciens solistes. En utilisant une approche qui combine le chant automatique et le mimétisme, Miller crée des espaces vulnérables et hospitaliers pour une écoute profonde.

Along the grain: the music of Cassandra Miller

James Weeks, Tempo, no 68:269, 1 juillet 2014

… performing Miller’s music one is aware of how attuned she is to the grain of music’s constituent elements, to their natural way of being or growing: to the grain of pitch, which is the harmonic series; to the grain of rhythm, which is pulse; to the grain of each instrument and voice, which is their open, tensionless sounding; to the grain of expression, which is giving; to the grain of time, which is endless continuation; to the grain of energy, which is entropy. These she works along or cuts across more or less obliquely to create the tensions that support the music. One might almost say that, as much as any composer working today, these grains are her materials: the complexity and richness of her finest work reacquaints us with these fundamentals in a way that does indeed allow us to hear and feel in new ways.
