Laden, and Strung

Laden works with the visceral oppression of  ‘too-muchness.’ The music for Laden contains obsessively repeated gestures and fragments, filtered through obsessively employed processing techniques. Resonance is used to evoke various parts of the performer’s psyche as she negotiates her environment. The vocal materials were created from expressions from a made-up language, utilizing the accoutrements of contemporary vocal practice.

Strung represents an investigation of an alternative style of dance phraseology, derived from manifesting shifts of meaning into a shifts of performance states.  There is no traditional underlying musical phraseology that the dance is chained to.  The audience watches the performer shift through these meaning states like watching an animal.
