Xani Kolac is highly-talented, solo loop violinist from Australia who, in the depths of a Canadian winter; composed, performed, and recorded several pieces at The Banff Centre in Western Canada. Having witnessed her stunning performances, Grammy Award Winning recording engineer, David Gleeson, asked Xani is she would be interested in creating a surround sound project. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to light and shoot a video of the recording and then started a long edit process to arrive at this piece. David Gleeson wrote a full article on the production that is available at Film & Media’s website.
