 “I realised that musical languages that are disparate in terms of their syntax and context (harmonic and otherwise), may assume a common resonance and meaning around the physicality of an instrument. In this way, your violin (and even yourself as a virtuoso) can be interpreted as a musical ‘Rosetta Stone’, translating through the physicality of movements in space between the Paganini Capricci and my own virtuosic music. I am therefore using as modes, not the motivic, melodic, or harmonic content, but the gestural content of finger and bow patterns in the Paganini, for my own series of Caprices.”   (David Gorton E mail  to PSS 24 10 06)
