Performed by Louis Barbier + Thin Edge New Music Collective
Choreographed by Manu Cyr
Naked to the Sky is a performance scored for circus artist, violin, saxophone, piano, percussion, and motion-sensitive live electronics. This work invistigates the fluctuation of identity, control, and influence. Through the use of movement-lead improvisation and motion sensors, analog and digital relationships are formed between the circus artist and the musicians, creating an inter-directed multi-dimensional force. Through these two dynamic connections, the choreographed movements of the artist will influence the musicians’ playing and the electronic manipulation of the acoustic sound. These connections evolve throughout of the piece, creating a complex cross-modal web of entanglements and ambiguities.
