Notes and Editorial Reviews
There is an inexplicable attribute of music that seems to induce the human form into motion with a reaction tangible, rhythmic and artistic; in other words, to dance. When he wrote “Dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music [with] the additional merit of being human and palpable”, Baudelaire confirmed that dancing incarnates this medium of invisibility. The music that follows, dances and dance-inspired music, spans nearly four centuries and is written by composers both known and being discovered. Exploring the intersection of these two art forms, it is a collection of pieces that is subtle, gentle and unexpected; here waiting to be discovered — with an invitation, delivered aurally, by two hands.
