“Biennale Snapshots” by Vivian Fung Visual meets aural
Wednesday September 9th, 2015
Biennale Snapshots with the Vancouver Symphony celebrates the Vancouver Biennale’s 2014–16 installations. It is the first musical composition to be commissioned by the Biennale. The 25-minute work is set in five movements, the first and second of which are played without pause. As the composer of the work, I chose to pay homage to the Biennale by selecting five different artworks from the exhibition and having each movement act as my musical “snapshot” of the art piece, allowing the visual to inspire the aural.
