we have begun the process of placing memory of how it feels on the stage floor.
i’ve been composing music for the contemporary dance and theatre stage for a number of years now, and (to my gentle … ahem … disappointment) most choreographers or directors often request i write edgy,
frenetic or convulsed music.
they never want pretty!!
e.g. the talented (yet intense) adam benjamin once asked me, “er … could you make that sound more like
a breaking chair, or something?”
ah but finally, on LOVAFFAIR i get to make pretty romance!
choreographer, ina wichterich, was completely happy for designer, craig leeuw, and i to get nostalgically saccharine!
