Jim O’Rourke collaboration with composer Giovanni Di Domenico

Italian pianist and composer Giovanni Di Domenico has collaborated with Jim O’Rourke in a new composition, titled Arco that will be performed for the first time at Brussel’s Bozar Night on the 10th January.

The piece, composed for a strings ensemble, was recorded by Di Domenico in Brussels last year with O’Rourke adding the electronics over the score.

Arco will be performed with a live string sextet with Di Domenico controlling the electronic track, though the Tokyo based O'Rourke will not be present. Programmed as part of Bozar Night: an evening dedicated to new electronic music, the line up also includes: Fennesz, Helena Hauff, Shxcxchcxsh, Black Rain, Ninos du Brasil and Acid Kirk.
