threnody [ contingent overload unravels ]



90 second documentation sample of threnody [ contingent overload unravels ] performance (2018) (with sound)

the complete work : 2-channel video, generative+live sound performance, 9 minutes.

Generated sound was, in the main, translated from manipulated video evidence of America's longest ever war, in Afghanistan. Footage was released by the American Department of Defense in early 2018.

Violin performance allows me to (embodied) sample and loop melody and chord-expression from Camille Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre. Some snippets of violin were included in the max patch; live performance with video projection completed the piece.

performed as [ manco ] Wednesday, July 18 at Milwaukee's Jazz Gallery
opening Peter J Woods' CD release event
