Stones / Avanim

A collaboration with choreographer/dancer Merav Israel and her company LaNua on a site-specific installation in Old Ambulance Depot, Edinburgh with dancers Rosalind Masson, Monika Smekot, Monica De Ioanni and Iraya Noble.

I worked with the dancers in devising the music and sound design during the development stage of the project. I installed a 4­-way sound system in the space and performed a live mix of the score.

The ideas explored the this work – stone and our relationship to it – meant the conventional musical tools of melody, harmony and rhythm seemed out of place. I worked with a restricted palette and used texture and pattern to create tension and release in the pieces used in the work.

Performed in May 2011. Commissioned by Creative Scotland.
