Gary Rouzer has a nice post on Gesture on Paper/Gesture in Space, with some of his photos and vidcaps from Brian Harris‘s video. An article on the piece is coming soon, in Arteidolia…
On 12 January the Havlik Dance Performance Group improvised movement with charcoal on paper. Artist Donna McKee led a workshop on gestural drawing that culminated in a performance for the dancers, with Gary Rouzer and me providing music. Brian Harris’s video Gesture on Paper/Gesture in Space captures the essence of the evening.
Well, not really. But the European Space Agency did use a clip of Autopoiesis as the music for an Instagram preview of their video Are You Ready for 2017?
In not unrelated news, An Eclipse of Images is now available at the Free Music Archive.
Thanks to Avant Music News for naming An Eclipse of Images one of its favorite releases of 2016, and for giving Frequency Drift an honorable mention.
(Full disclosure: I write for AMN but am not involved in making selections for end-of-year lists.)
Very nice review of An Eclipse of Images from the Mixolydian Blog. Thank you, Derek!
