"How do I want the audience to feel? What will inhibit my movement? How will the dress reflect the music and the overall aesthetic I'm trying to project of the concert?"
These are a few questions that violinist Katha Zinn asks herself as a frequent performer. I had the opportunity to collaborate with Katha (we met 17 years ago at Walnut Hill Arts School!), on her upcoming video of the gorgeous Ysayë Sonata No. 2 "Obsession". Interpreting the mood, textures, and colors of each movement, I chose four different NOT garments for her to wear.
Katha will be launching the videos over the next few weeks, but first, enjoy our introductory interview! Katha and I sit down to discuss the concerns she faces while choosing what to wear, how I went about choosing each garment for this particular violin sonata, and we also share behind-the-scenes footage of our fitting session.
