resonance
arrived through layers of information transformation. What began as an animation of rotating spirographs drawing themselves became, with maxMSP's computer vision tools, a MIDI score.

The MIDI score plays the synthesizers built in Logic; I composed melodic lines to give the dancers support for longer arcing movements. Music accompanies the three performers . . .

 



 

The performance With the score playing, an artist draws directly
on the pavement with a compass and pastel pencils.

Dancers’ feet erase and blur the drawing.

The artist draws a bit more, the dancers' movements erase . . .
. . . and repeat, evolve, transform . . . repeat.

Performance with electronic music, 45 minutes.
