"One day, while I was composing the music, this title came into my mind as an inevitability: Aspiration."  It is a double CD with four pieces for solo violin, where well renowned violinist Irvine Arditti plays four different pieces:

Shifting/Drifting for violin and real-time algorithmic transformation, imagE/violin, Aspiration and Kokoro.

In Shifting/ Drifting the computer algorithms manipulates the „seeds“ from the soloist´s materials interactively during performance.

The pieces imagE/violin 2015 and imAge/violin 2015 were originally composed for cellist Alexis Descharmes. 

While composing it for the violin pair, Reynolds worked closely together with Irvine, as was the the case earlier with Kokoro.

Kokoro was inspired by reading D: Suzuki´s Zen and Japanese Culture.

In Aspiration Irvine´s playing is superimposed on the ensemble, figurative outbursts that serve to bring a listener´s attention back to his role whatever is happening.
