From Vilcek Foundation:

Composer and virtuoso violinist Mari Kimura will perform a one-night-only at the Bohemian National Hall, hosted by the Vilcek Foundation. Ms. Kimura will perform a selection of classical and contemporary works, and premiere a number of her own compositions, including a duet for violin and cello, on which she will be accompanied by Grammy Award-nominated cellist Dave Eggar. Wearing custom-fit sensor gloves, the duo will implement a new technology that tracks bowing motions, thus giving musical expression to the two bows as they interact. Ms. Kimura will also debut a new variation of Subharmonics, her revolutionary bowing technique, which allows a violinist to play one full octave below the open G without changing the instrument’s tuning.
