Richard Zarou on Ad Vitam Aeternam

Richard Zarou was at EMM presenting a piece titled Ad Vitam Aeternam. According to Zarou, the piece “explores the harmonic and textural possibilities of the same musical material simultaneously being performed at multiple tempos.” Stylistically, the composition draws heavily on his background in a church that still performs hymns in chant.

Here is the version of Ad Vitam Aeternam recorded by Sarah Horick.
