PYLON III


Score to PYLON III--the final work in a trilogy of full-length dance performances choreographed by Coleman Pester. The PYLON series examines complex systems of control and a journey towards utopia, using highly physical choreography, architectural set pieces, and a variety of analog and digital technologies altogether in a tense relationship.


JODOROWSKY'S THE HOLY MOUNTAIN RE-SCORE


A commissioned live score for Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain for the Puget Soundtrack Residency, a Cue Northwest project in partnership with Brick Lane Records and Northwest Film Forum. Composed and recorded by Monika Khot and Adam Wolcott Smith. Mixed by Randall Dunn at Avast Recording in Seattle. Piece 15 of 32.


PYLON II


Score to PYLON II--explores themes of systematic fear and control placed on human bodies operating within a quagmire of technological systems essential to modern society (i.e. surveillance, the internet, architectural design). PYLON II incorporates live surveillance feeds to explore questions of observation and consent. Audiences for PYLON II enter into an immersive environment featuring, a cast of five dancers engaged in highly physical choreographed movement, a live sound score, and a complex surveillance system which is simultaneously recording and projecting visual information coming from cameras throughout the space."


BICYCLE WHEELS


Bicycle wheel instrument used live and made to act like a tremolo by spinning the wheel in-between a photoresistor and a bright light.


SOLIPSISTIC SINES


Score to experimental short 'Nineteen 96 Ounces' by Mariel Andersen, first performed by a Computer Music Ensemble as part of Digitalis 2014, using a graphical score and a Max-MSP patch built for the performers.





Opening audio for PYLON III--Video and visuals by Alexander Boschenstein.
