"Viola virtuoso Garth Knox, in concert with well-known video artist Brian O'Reilly, created Spectral Strands, an unique audiovisual program that features compositions by Giacinto Scelsi, Salvatore Sciarrino, Gérard Grisey, Michael Edwards and Kaija Saariaho. Although the rainbow is a familiar object, the discovery that ordinary light can be split into a spectacular spectrum of color remains a source of wonder. In 'spectral music' the same concept is been applied to sound, and the resulting sound colors, obtained with the help of electronics, are no less spectacular and have excited a whole generation of composers." All region DVD; running time: 57 minutes.
