Show & Prove is this week's collaboration with Boris Willis. When he sent me this video, Boris said:

I was a part of Holly Bass' performance art piece Show and Prove at Transformer Gallery. Anyone could ask her to dance and she put music on her iPod and a earpiece in my ear and we danced for a song. It was somethings slow with a woman's voice about love. I keep thinking it was billie holiday singing the man I love but it was not that song.

I think it's interesting to see how many people will walk by Boris when he's dancing in public without giving him a second glance (many of his posts demonstrate this behavior). I tried to capture that in my scoring by buring an old scratchy recording underneath subtly looping crowd sounds. Enjoy.
