Rachel Thompson – violin

It’s hard to stop when you’re working in circles documents the first year of Rachel Thompson’s idiosyncratic, movement – based improvisational practice. Having enacted a conscious shift in musical intention, she redirects her efforts towards the creation of new patterns of physical interaction with the instrument, and only then shaping the resulting sound. Cover art features an analogous etching by Thompson, printed by Charles Lyon in an edition of 250. Recorded in the attic, spring 2004.
