World Premiere, commissioned by CONTAINER // FOUR project

The experience of learning an instrument in the academy – the violin in my case – is often infused with strict discipline and obedience: an effort associated with suffering. Do(u)ble quartet. A queer treatise on violin playing, Vol. 1 takes the canonical violin treatises (Germiniani, Mozart, Herrando) as a starting point to subvert the normativity of directive pedagogy and proposes an alternative manual, an exercise in deviation in which four performers experience the possibility of expanding and subverting the instrument: a single electric violin.
