POWERFUL Compositions by Stephanie Quinn
Stephanie Quinn’s life is her muse.
Her life makes her passionate, brave, resilient, and kindhearted. She brought Israelis and Arabs together in Jerusalem. In Egypt, she was granted official permission to spend the night inside the King’s Chamber to record her first album, SAQQARA SUITE (Inside the Great Pyramid). This music came forth while exploring temples in Egypt, especially Saqqara, the ancient site of sound healing. The resonance of the chamber inspired Stephanie to use innovative bow techniques and creative intonation, while her training at the Eastman School gave her the ability to orchestrate three of the movements for her album.
Kay Larson - author of Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism, and the Inner Life of Artists,
responds to SAQQARA SUITE: “It’s magnificent! Wow, so beautiful! Elusive, too, and exhilarating and spooky. I love this channeling violin. This CD is now my favorite car-travel soundtrack. It seems to condense so many feelings about space and time and distance (temporal, linear, imaginative). The acoustics are surreal.”
After mastering Ms Quinn’s album, two times Emmy winner composer, and Grammy nominated Master Engineer, Tom Spahn concludes, “This music is like a compass carrying the listener to the center of pitch. Stephanie brings to pitch what Heifetz brings to music.” New York City, NY
