Murmuration, conceived by Sarah Reid
Murmuration is an interdisciplinary performance developed by trumpet player Sarah Reid with a team of musicians, designers, and dancers. Inspired by string theory and the idea that every component of the universe is at once infinitely small, infinitely large, and infinitely complex, the piece takes place in a responsive environment in which performance data is collected in real time and used as a set of dynamic controls for live electronics and video projection.
Produced in the Sharon Disney Lund Theater at CalArts in 2015
Original music composed by Sarah Reid, Justin Scheid (electronics), and Tony Gennaro (percussion)
