Colleen - Geometria Del Universo

It's been no time at all since we listened to Colleen on Doklands, but if you think that's going to stop us then clearly you don't know our appetite for post-classical bagatelles. Geometria del Universo is taken from the album The Weighing of the Heart (2013) and it's Cécile Schott playing solo viol. There's something distinctly rough and ancient about the timbre of her instrument, and the clashing resonances of body and strings, a sound from before mathematically perfect engineering methods. A plucked melody falls from her fingers; waits when she waits, hurries along when she hurries. If this really is the geometry of the universe, then reality is a deeply personal affair.
