Graphic scores are not commonly included in regular Symphony Orchestra programs, nor are the works of non-musician visual artists: this work will be used to bridge disciplines, and introduce both the musicians and a public audience to the potential of visually & aurally integrated works of art.
“slippages” is a synthesis of material from researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) regarding the physical, anthropological, and philosophical properties of glaciers. In collaboration with Maestro Girard (Wall Scholar for 2018-2019), I will work with the 110-member orchestra to present a structured improvisational sonic piece and produce a complementary video work with Edmonton-based artist Sydney Lancaster. This video is intended to be viewed from above the orchestra and will be presented to the audience as part of the performance.
A painting-based installation is also planned for the Chan Centre atrium; a 80” x 120” macro view of glacial ice.
