Voice (a retracing) is a video/sound work which seeks to capture and articulate the dancer's inner experience of movement improvisation. In doing so, this work layers and distorts video images and uses the dancer's spoken voice as the basis for an acousmatic composition.
In this exposition Tom Williams (composer) and Vida L Midgelow (dancer and videographer) discuss a creative lexicon emerging from their collaborative processes making this work. Through these conversations they reveal conceptual, contextual and methodological ideas, illuminating their creative practices.
