Die Aufführung wird auch dazu beitragen, dass die Live-Musik nach ein paar harten Jahren in Covid-19 wieder auf die Beine kommt".

Ian Watson spielt seit vielen Jahren in der Band "Divine Comedy", und so kam es, dass das London Accordion Orchestra auf dem kürzlich erschienenen "Best of"-Album "Charmed Life" der Divine Comedy zu hören ist.

Video: Naomi Harris performing “Vires Acquirit Eundo” - Canada

Naomi HarrisVideo: “Vires Acquirit Eundo” - Naomi Harris, accordion

Naomi Harris is a music student at the University of Victoria in Canada, currently studying accordion performance.

The composition, “Vires Acquirit Eundo” is an artistic contribution to the Equity Action Plan “Safety to be One’s True Self.” This is expressed through this three-movement accordion and vocal performance meaning “we gather strength as we go”.

This piece includes reflections taken directly from members of the UVic community and addresses tensions that arise from individuation in society. The piece was composed with traditional influences of accordion composition while also utilizing contemporary accordion techniques.

The first movement expresses the formation of identity; discovering one’s capabilities and limitations. Progressing into the second movement, the individual is elated and driven to find meaning and purpose. The piece concludes with confusion and frustration. Losing parts of oneself to mold into a collective, but ultimately rediscovering and returning to one’s true self.
