The video for Daniel Pesca's "Ripple, Current, Eddy" is out now! Featuring *me* on cello and the composer himself on piano, this performance took place at Constellation in December 2019 as part of the live concert event for New Music//New Film Collab. The video art behind the performers was created and projected by XUAN, and the footage and audio of this performance was recorded and produced by Mark Alletag of Aphorism Studios.
The goal of New Music//New Film Collaborative was to create new musical works and pair them with amazing video art. Mary Kouyoumdjian, David Clay Mettens, Daniel Pesca, Leaha Maria Villarreal, and Kirsten Volness each wrote a piece including or featuring cello, and those pieces became the basis for a series of five videos created by XUAN. As we release videos for each of these pieces, some of the vids will include only visuals produced by XUAN, and some will be footage (and audio) of live performances of the works (which include projected visuals by XUAN) from our December show at Constellation in Chicago.
