Switch By Germaine Liu

“Switch is a composition for Cheryl, Ilana, Olivia and Solomiya. The inspiration comes from a choreographed dance piece by Colleen Friedman. The explorations of movement, light and dark in her work resonated with me.

This piece explores sound, light, dark, movement and play.
I have an increasing urge to play in music. Taking in the true sense of the word play, I hope that the performers and audience will share a child-like experience and feel the joy of play.

I see this composition as a collection of scenarios where the performers/players are given a number of tasks to explore, play and feed off of each others’ musicality and energy. I am interested in how the music will unfold organically over time as a result of exploring patterns, body movements and the players’ relationship with each other.” –Germaine Liu
