panning_memory

By Jennifer Sherburn

Dance 2 of 11:11:04

panning_memory is a collaboration between Jennifer Sherburn and composer William West created specifically for a surround sound environment. Jennifer is exploring a new way to collaborate with the music by observing Williams’s computer files as the score is played, then translating into movement the patterns and data from the panning modules, tracks and channels built within the score.

The audience is seated in the round for an immersive experience of the physical performance in conjunction with the surround score. Through this process there has been a tug at old memories as early artists; a place where things felt new and fascinating, experimenting with sonic and physical stimuli. This re-discovered territory allows the two collaborators to abandon the all too familiar solutions developed over the years and trade them for more vulnerable and precious results.
