Shobana Jeyasingh‘s TooMortal is returning shortly (10th-12th October) as part of Dance Umbrella 2013.
We created the multispeaker surround soundtrack for the piece, using recordings of the Tenebrae Responsories by James MacMillan. (Technically, MacMillan’s work was licensed for remixing, although the compositional process involved building a bespoke Max for Live instrument and improvising control changes to manipulate, phase-shift and spatialise short loops of the original material.)
Tickets are available here. Many of the performances are already sold out.
A quick roundup of press coverage of TooMortal:
This is a short trailer for TooMortal by Gary John Tanner. (Note: the sound mix here is unfinished; for a more polished version see SJDC’s Vimeo channel.) The UK leg of the tour is over; next performance dates are at Dansens Hus, Stockholm in September.
We’ve just started work on a multichannel sound score for Shobana Jeyasingh’s new dance work TooMortal, a site-specific piece for historic churches in the UK, Venice and Stockholm.
