The Instrument
Dreadnought
Working with the atmospheres and structures of classical music pieces; theme, variation, repetition and simultaneously chaotic elements; noise, feedback, distortion, using familiarity as a springboard to instability, Dreadnought navigates a path between opposite poles. An attempt to create order and its inevitable undoing. Resonating through multiple layers, an interplay of animated relationships between space, sound and body.
