PRE-EXISTING CHOREOGRAPHY
WITH NEWLY COMPOSED ACCOMPANIMENT

Performed by Aaron Smith
Music performed by
Natalie Groom on soprano saxophone.

Dancer Aaron Smith presented Ms. Groom with 30 second dance clip without sound. Ms. Groom was tasked with composing musical accompaniment through a medium other than clarinet. The end product was a compilation of musical ideas using melodic content from Manuel da Falla's Three Cornered Hat, and soprano saxophone was used as the performance medium.

Dancers Molly Meyers and Meredith Jones were paired with Natalie Groom and Matthew Timman with the task of creating original music and dance that would function as the second movement of a three movement work.
