Viola Torros
present
V.T.Augmentations III
arranged by JOHNNY CHANG & CATHERINE LAMB


Viola Torros Project is an ongoing research, by composer-performers Catherine Lamb and Johnny Chang, which seeks to realise and arrange the compositions of a pre-medieval composer, Viola Torros.

Viola T. was an anonyma composer who worked outside of the Establishments of her day, namely, religious and academic institutions. In her own practice, she documented her works in a minimally effective way, just enough to communicate with her fellow collaborators - in fact, barely enough to preserve a "legacy" for later generations of enthusiasts of her music.

The concept of "research" referred to by the Viola Torros Project involves studies of various relevant musical styles of the pre-medieval period (arabic, byzantine and indian modes), and investigating possible evolution of melodic and harmonic developments as V. T. might have discovered. Choosing one aspect of such a musical style to focus upon, details are discovered and presented in an arrangement for two violas, often with additional augmentations.
