Commissioned by KcEMA and Quadrivium.
E: Vespers is a single-channel video collaboration with visual artist Rebecca Dolan. The audio, it is part of a series of works composed for a variety of electronics and live instruments inspired by the aural trajectory of an eclipse. The video is part of a series focused on the horizon as a point of locus and grounding.
An eclipse is the obscuration of light, an emotional reduction or loss of splendor, status, and/or a reputation that forces us to examine our mortality. Ironically, in this space, magnetism and opposition join – awe and fear combine to create a truly phenomenal example of the interconnectedness of experience.
