“The Equation of Time” is the Charke-Cormier Duo’s third album and their second to feature recital programming that spans various genres and styles. Like their first album, Ex Tempore, it showcases their shared aspiration to play music both old and new, original works and arrangements, to explore the stunning timbral combination of flute and guitar. Although both the album and its titular work were planned long before coronavirus became a household name, it is uncanny yet fitting that this recording project took place amid the COVID-19 pandemic, an event that has greatly disrupted our sense of time. The Equation of Time exemplifies how truly special art can result when the artists are given the time and space to communicate and create.
Featuring Derek Charke on flute and bass flute, Eugene Cormier on classical guitar, and Celso Machado on percussion.
“The transformation of such an abstract concept as time into an easily digestible series of works is a testament to the Charke-Cormier Duo’s musical ingenuity."
