Video excerpt from The Other Shoe
Choreography by Sasha Soreff. Score by Chris Becker.
This excerpt features Lenae Harris on cello and myself on percussion and Kaoss pad. The track is a combination of improvised passages and performance (on both cello and the Kaoss pad) along side heavily edited audio. While composing and recording tracks, I tried to maintain a tension between these two extremes - live "in the moment" playing vs scored and/or heavily edited passages. The raw and the cooked. The intuitive and the intellectual. I was listening to Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra and piano , Nine Inch Nails (Ghosts, The Slip), and Stravinsky (Les Noces).
