Cat Hope: Shivering Shoulders

Cat Hope’s compositions are conceptually driven, using mostly graphic scores, acoustic/electronic combinations and new score reading technologies, often featuring aleatoric elements, drone, noise, glissandi and an ongoing fascination with low frequency sound. Shivering Shoulders is a work for electric bass guitar and orchestra, featuring the composer as soloist. It takes its title from a line in The Monsters Are Out, a poem by Maxine Beneba Clarke which reflects on violence against women in Melbourne, Australia.
