Richard Michael, visiting professor of Jazz Piano at St Andrew’s University, and violinist Joanna Duncan continue their exploration of the connections between art and music, with a practical examination of the Colour Wheel. Just as artists bring life to their paintings with shades of light and dark in their use of colour, similarly composers use the contrast between modes (eg. Lydian and Locrian) to bring depth and variety to their compositions and, in Richard and Joanna’s case, improvisation. Join us for an evening of art and live music.
