He got it wrong, but also I might have explained the rules wrong.
Ok, both are true.

So many nails piercing the flesh, so many forms of torture

I manipulated this video that Daniela Amortegui and Alex Grimes recorded. I time-stretched, color-fiddled, edited/reorganized Daniella’s reading of text she had written. Isolating her breath(s) was really important to me too. Then I added text to the video as well, since I knew that during the performance it would be the piano speaking* for her, which can be difficult to understand.  I also played with shifting the text and the the video so they’re not always synced and at times I’ve added my own imaginary text. I wanted to treat this like poetry. Then Alex thought it would be a cool idea if we obfuscated some of the text and so we did that too. This was played/performed at the Pianos Without Organs Festival on Oct. 9, 2016 in Raleigh, North Carolina (the best Carolina).

*curious about how a piano can speak? Watch this video I made about a Robotic Piano workshop: Continue reading »

Videos for YSWN (Yorkshire Sound Women Network)

There are 6 videos in this post.

Over the years, I’ve worked quite a bit with the Yorkshire Sound Women Network. Though I was behind the lens, I absorbed much at each workshop and event they put together–not the least of which was the enthusiasm these events generated. YSWN is an organization that actively encourages girls and women to gain competency with sound equipment and music making. Here is a collection of those videos (my favorite is the Noisey Toy Assembly video below. You’ll see why).

[ factory ] a long rope

A living score asks you if you’re interested in realizing a work she’s the archive to.
This video is my yes.

[factory] is a proposal for collaborative performance action(s).
This video realization–“[factory] a long rope”– was created by me and  features Mira Benjamin performing sections of her own realization of [factory]. She would normally do this in live performance settings so working on this video with me was a deviation from that too.

[factory] began as a set of 22 texts written by Luke Nickel. These texts—or verbal scores—were linked by a geographical map, with each text representing an individual conceptual area or room. Luke and Mira Benjamin (the original performer) agreed upon a risky proposal: she would read the texts only once and then delete them, allowing the work to exist solely in her memory and inviting forgettings and linguistic permutations to infect the ephemeral score-object itself. Mira is now the living score for the work, voluntarily responsible for its transferral, transformation and translation.
