SA1- the world lifts the heart
SA2- while whirling
SA3- through westless rains
SA4- on the lawns of insomnia
SB1- a throbbing whisper
SB2- smiling with unseen weight
SB3- those exiled belongings
SB4- of many others whirling

On While Whirling, French-Japanese violist Frantz Loriot unleashes the essence of the viola as an explosive force. Pushing the instrument to extremes, he ceaselessly explores its most subtle and unexpected sonorities. From a single acoustic string instrument, he miraculously teases and evokes hallucinatory impressions of harpsichords pounded, bells struck, electronics cracked, dirt shoveled; Loriot has created a unique, personal music filled with moments of textured transcendence and tension-filled tenderness.
