Featured video - Kate Moore's <em>Velvet</em>

This video of the performance of Kate Moore's work Velvet by TwoSense (Ashley Bathgate, cello, and Lisa Moore, piano) was recorded in New York on 4 January 2011.

According to the composer, the work was inspired by the depiction of cloth in Renaissance paintings: 'Movement, vitality and earthiness are captured and distilled within the frame and stillness of the painting. The shades of light and dark are emphasised by the lines and creases where the sun catches its outlines. Where the tactile fabric is inverted, shadows are made darker by the turgid grottos and canyons carved into the tectonic landscape of its folds.'
