Linda Austin – A Head of Time

My sound score for this dance performance was developed through an extended series of improvisations with the company, in rehearsal and various in-progress showings.  I asked Linda to keep an audio diary, collecting the sounds of family events, passing conversations, interactions with strangers and ordinary environments – specific moments in time.  These everyday sounds were mixed live for each performance, along with ambient drones, airy hissing and musical textures.  Additional sounds emerged from multiple on-stage televisions displaying video documents of the choreographic process.
