IMC (2011)

 

An experiment in image/sound relationships and time-manipulation consisting of footage shot during a rehearsal of Scott Putman’s “Escaping The Silence of Winters Night’ performed by an ensemble of dancers representing multiple companies participating in the 2010 Great Friends Dance Festival held in Newport, Rhode Island. The footage was shot with a slow shutter effect in order to cause the images to ‘streak’ in a manner that accentuated the dancers’ movements and the clips were then arranged within Arkaos VJ software where they could be triggered with a keyboard in simultaneous conjunction with the soundtrack in Ableton Live in an attempt to ‘play’ the video like a musical instrument.  Special thanks to the Island Moving Company for hosting the event, performing with the ensemble and allowing me to film the rehearsal.
