Choreographer, Valerie Williams and visual artist, Hiromi Okumura and I met to view and discuss video footage to fill the space using 3 projectors. We are planning to combine unique images of paint and glass, as well as capturing audience members to superimposed in the projections.
The music will develop and evolve over our workshopping time during May as the collection of glass grows and evolves. Ideas are swirling around about the sonic environments. Much may include a base of varying improvised palettes with remnants of tonality and familiar pieces of music convalescing about the space, but I am still in the very early stages of this, and this will likely take shape later this month.
Many wind chimes made by Nathan Ratliff, and good friend in Texas, are on their way later this week, as well as more goodies from the Gaffer's Guild.
