MOVING SOUNDS FESTIVAL | PERFORMANCE
SUNDAY, SEP 22 2013, 07:00 PM
Developed by William "Bilwa" Costa, Martín Lanz Landázuri, and Emily Sweeney, resonance explores figurative, physical, and mechanical phenomena related to resonance. The resonance score has emerged through the repeated exploration of methods for reverberating mindfully in improvisation. This performance, which is part of the 2013 Moving Sounds festival, features the current iteration of the resonance score performed by Bilwa, Martín, and Emily. Microphones, chalk lines, paper molecules, words, gestures, maps - all are used to trace expansions and contractions of energy and sound through the bodies and around the space.
