String Samba: A Multisensory Journey of Music and Visual Artistry

Updated: Mar 15

As an artist dedicated to pushing the boundaries of creativity, I'm excited to share that my composition, String Samba, is a highlight of Davis Brooks' album "Lines from Poetry," released by the renowned label Ablaze Records.

According to Davis Brooks, the album's artist and performer, "Lines from Poetry" is a celebration of the beauty and complexity of the human experience. This sentiment is particularly evident in String Samba, where the music and visual elements come together to create a truly immersive experience that is both captivating and thought-provoking.


String Samba intertwines the sounds of three violins, a viola, and digital choreography, crafting a tapestry of articulations, textures, and manipulated sounds. The piece's complex, syncopated rhythms pay homage to Brazilian music and dance, inviting listeners to immerse themselves in the rich and rhythmic world of Brazilian culture.


Davis Brooks delivered a stunning performance of String Samba, elevating the piece to new heights with his mastery of the violin, viola, and deep connection to the music. His interpretation brought out the nuances and complexities of the composition.


The digital choreography, created by Taylor Colimore, Tamara Denson, and Kate Sicchio, enhances the music with a stunning display of lines, colors, and movement. This visual component, achieved through rotoscoping animation techniques, adds a layer of depth and meaning to the music, creating a truly immersive experience for the audience.


In 2023, String Samba's performance at the Electronic Music Midwest Festival was a significant moment, highlighting its capacity to captivate a diverse audience with its intricate rhythms and vibrant visuals. The performance underscored the piece's ability to transcend traditional boundaries, showcasing the power of interdisciplinary artistry.


I invite you to immerse yourself in the beauty and complexity of String Samba. Experience the fusion of music and visuals, and allow yourself to be transported to a world where art knows no boundaries.



Davis Brooks' album is available on streaming platforms, including Spotify and YouTube Music.
