Michael Schwab and
David Pirrò is a video
and an installation piece
in which the captured motion
of a dancer is transposed into
a dynamic drawing that informs a
musical composition.The piece explores
the dance movements, the drawing algorithms
and the musical structures in an attempt to
transpose rather than represent the dancer's movements.
is based on
collected from Bodyscapes (2009),
an intermedial dance solo performance
by Valentina Moar(choreography/dance),
Gerhard Eckel and David Pirrò (composition).
