COLLECTIONS : UMMA

November 20th, 2010

I was honored to perform in this project, created by sound artist and MFA candidate John Kannenberg in 2010. "Collections: UMMA" is the live score for a site-specific sound and video performance based on the architecture of the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

A documentary overview of the project by Emilia Javanica:

Here's the original (silent) film-- click on through to the Vimeo page to read the complete score, which includes directives like "if you can read any signs or indicator lights, do your best to obey them" and "when you see a bench, rest."

Here's a rough cut of our first performance:

My role was to sample the sounds of performers and the surrounding space, then process and recapitulate them in the live setting. This was a very exciting piece to be a part of; Mr. Kannenberg's projects are always sensitive and thoughtful. The experience made me think a lot about architecture's facilitation of a sonic experience, and inspired me to explore it further in the future.

One of my favorite aspects of this event: even people who were just passing by and had no idea what was going on enjoyed it, which indicates that it was enjoyable on a purely visceral as well as an intellectual level. Nice.
