Instrumentation: Live Electronics

The last project I worked on with Seen Performance was to be a series of series of short works created through round-robin style collaboration that join in the social mingling at local house parties, challenging where we see performance.

Each of us takes a week to add a layer to the current piece, developing its "concept" or style one by one. We then convene over the elements and figure out how to polish the work so that it is ready for performanace -preferably at a local house party or some similar setting, putting performance into social mingling like any other conversation.

Landing was the second of these pieces (and the last we've made in the series for now.) I started the process with a music sketch, Shana built on it by designing a set for the dancers (filled with hanging Slinky toys), and Esther finished up the process with choreography.

Our blog outlines the progression of the work:
