Score devised around an emotional analysis of the #egypt twitter feed.  Ceiling mounted cameras are used to drive the visual score based on performer movement as well as control aspects of the sound score in real time in reaction to the body.  Cell phone apps devised for audience interaction by Tony Reimer and John Toenjes.  Camera systems developed by Hugh Sato.

Light Hand (2018)

In collaboration with Synapse Arts and choreographer Rachel Damen.

Light Hand excerpts from Synapse Arts on Vimeo.

8 speakers, 1 imbedded in the costume of each dancer, transmit an 8 channel sound score made up entirely a solo cello playing all 8 parts.  Each of 8 vignettes features a different dancer as lead and then remnants of each vignette linger and intermingle with subsequent vignettes to create a musical tapestry like the ones the dancers move within.
