The Collaged Spur Violin

rVb was commissioned by Sarah Curro to create artwork for her cherished Spur Violin, made by Paul Davies.

rVb created nine graphic scores that represented Curro’s favorite historical orchestral composition. She then remixed and collaged those graphic scores together and applied them to the body of the violin. The violin was first played live during the Volume 9 series for new composers in 2016, and now goes on to have many other journeys.

Artist’s book about the process and the Spur Violin difference forthcoming in 2017.
