After several months of work in the metal shop and rehearsals with my choreographer partner, Dinah Gray, and our dancers Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp, Lisa Eller, and Aaron Wine Goldman, our piece Study No. 1 for Bodies, Metal, and Air premiered at McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville on March 5th, 2010. It was the third completed piece in my dissertation series. We did three performances over the evening, and each one was well-received. Audience members were able to play with the metal items in the sound environment after each performance. The accompanying video is from the second performance of the evening. As the sound is so spatially-specific, the subtle changes do not translate well to a recording, but the video gives a general idea of the piece. You can read more about how it works on the Sounds page.
