Trampoline

Trampoline/Distribution

Trampoline/Distribution

I invited musician Neil Campbell accompany to create a score for my video performance Trampoline, bringing both to a live seated audience. Trampoline and Distribution, played by four pianists- both explore states of physical, mental and spiritual endurance through performance.

Nine hours jumping whittled to seven minutes video play is mimicked by the cyclical minimalism of Distribution. The quartet repeat four musical loops, by progressing through their individual strands, each of the players create ever shifting relationships; for the listener, a ‘distribution’ of four possible rhythmic perspectives at any given point. Each player must avoid entanglement in their co-musicians parts yet remain perfectly synchronised to create the tight cross-rhythms. The intensity is heightened by possibility of my fall on screen. Sound and movement cohere, yet both suggest that the state of arrival is in constant succession and fallibility is possible at any given instant.
