Serge's Song
"The first notes drift in as if from a dream, slow, tentative. The next notes dance. The following notes weep. Serge manages to play a melody that strikes me to my core."
From the album and novel GRAVITY WING by Clio Em --> clio-em.com/gravity-wing

A baroque viola tune interpreted on folk violin, with electronic sci-fi facets. Serge plays a beloved song for Isabel that tells a story of tragedy and love. In Serge’s Song, two machines move in a mechanical minuet.

Green
"Green has always been my favourite colour.
This shade reminds me of the conifer trees
In the valleys, here in the New Rockies
When viewed through falling snow."
From the album and novel GRAVITY WING by Clio Em --> clio-em.com/gravity-wing
A postmodern virelai, green the colour become swirling sound.

The Dual Muse
The Dual Muse | a contemporary intervention in Ferdinand III's baroque opera, Drama Musicum
Composition and performance Copyright © 2014 Clio Montrey.
Video by Karlheinz Essl.

A cooperation between the Austrian National Library and the mdw. Kaiser Ferdinand III. "Drama musicum", 1649, with 21st century interventions. Collegium musicum mdw. Electroacoustic compositions: Class of Karlheinz Essl. Direction: Ingomar Rainer. World Premiere May 12, 2014 in the Austrian National Library at the Hofburg Palace, Vienna. Costume (not depicted) by Halina Montrey (halinamontrey.com).

I portray the Dual Muse, who is embodying the impulses of both Amor Divino (heavenly love) and Amor Protervo (earthly love). The character Giovinetto must choose an Amor. The Dual Muse presents both sides. Which one will he choose?
