Friday night, April 9th, at Issue Project Room

I work so much with Luke DuBois and the live video portion of his arsenal, that it’s a real treat to play some of his music for a change. Here are some details about his new piece, ‘Moments of Inertia’:

R. Luke DuBois will present his piece, Moments of Inertia featuring Todd Reynolds on violin. The piece is an evening-length performance based on a teleological study of gesture in musical performance and how it relates to gesture in intimate social interaction. The work is written for solo violin with real-time computer accompaniment and video. Moments consists of twelve violin études — ranging from 3-5 minutes in length — each of which uses a different violin performance gesture as a control input for manipulating a short piece of high-speed film (300 frames-per-second) — of a person performing a social gesture. Taking its cue from principles in physics that determine an object’s resistance to change, the violinist’s gestures time-remap and scrub the video clip to explore the intricacies of the performed action.

  1. I really love this.

    I have always been a fan of the violin, this I must say, is incredibly innovative.

    Thank you.
