Info for Mark Adderley: Bite the Dog II
Adderley has created a complex and challenging concerto, full of wit, energy and diversity. It is also a very demanding piece for the musicians. Moreover, it poses challenges of a practical nature, particularly for a project-based ensemble with fewer regular musicians than a standing orchestra, an issue further complicated by our decision to record it in conjunction with the premiere. Recording a complex work like Bite the Dog II allows you to bring the music to life in a new and different way. The sound cannot and shouldn’t replicate the concert hall experience; the direct contact with sounds in a room – the sensuality, the physicality, that “live” feel – must be replaced with something else. There is a parallel with the visual arts here, to the extent that we sense a visual dimension in this world of sound: the closeness and richness of detail of a recording can bring the listeners nearer to the energy of the music.
“I don’t start out with a prefabricated concept, because that would feel like a straitjacket – an impediment to my creative imagination. I need to leave space for spontaneous creativity. I don’t build the superstructure first, and then fill in the gaps; instead I let the music develop naturally of its own accord, with its own agenda, its own imperative! The overall structure is the space of time that the resulting music occupies.” (Mark Adderley)
