Video: Molly Barth – Loops

Flutist Molly Barth is, perhaps, best known as one of the people behind Beta Collide, a thrilling and inspired new music ensemble based out of Eugene. But as with any talented artist, Barth does get out to do her own performances and recordings, such as this invigorating video piece created by her and Jack Ryan.

It’s another clip that reminds me of the good ol’ days of Alive From Off Center, the PBS program that introduced many a young curious soul like myself to the works of Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, and beyond.

The video is a fine representation of the short cyclical piece composed by Philippe Hurel, which – true to its name – features repeating melodic lines threaded around themselves and into each other with breathless intensity.
