Notes & Reviews:

Richard Carrick's (b. 1971) music draws inspiration from his French, North African, and British background, his studies in mathematics and philosophy, interest in psychology, and experience as a performer of notated and improvised music. All of his music stems from his roots in chamber music and musical performance but often branches out into the experimental realm to showcase musicality in other aspects of performance. His chamber pieces (Duo Flow, Flow Trio) explore the evolution of musical threads over time as they are passed from one instrument to the next. His solo works ("in flow," Shadow Flow, Moroccan Flow) feature virtuosic and intense acrobatics for the soloist. In Carrick's words, "The cycle as a whole is influenced by Islamic mosaics, Gnawa music of Morocco, Albert Camus' "L'Étranger," and the Flow concept of Csíkszentmihályi. One of the goals of this cycle was to write music that was focused yet still expansive, that developed new sounds for string instruments, and featured virtuoso performing to achieve new textures and the evolution of these textures through time."
