This revised version looks back at the original Cable Veins (2016). I returned to focus more on the movement, the sound heard. Reduced to its simplest form.
piano and electronics
Cable Veins was conceived after two moments: 1) watching a dancer/non-pianist playing across a piano before a rehearsal at Centre national de la danse, and 2) whilst taking a cable car ride. What struck me in both instances was the amount of movement seen verses the sounds heard; both the dancer and the whirring cogs of the machine making sound yet producing a more intricate movement. This was a quality I wanted to investigate, to create a gesture, which in turn would create the sound.
All in a meditative state.
