wisps,... takes inspiration from a piece by Martine Thomas which involves a performer leaving their belongings behind, going outside, closing their eyes and walking forward. In that work, I felt a surreal detachment from my world, as I floated in a black, otherworldly, visual vacuum. Simultaneously, the sonic, my guiding sense, took a hyper-defined presence, as it no longer was a peripheral sense, but one for primary navigation. One may feel the music of wisps,... traveling through the atmospheric expanse of the space, being whisked, higher and higher upward, swirling in a cloud above us all, towards the ceiling or sky.
The music was composed in close collaboration and workshopping with Martine Thomas and Annie Wu.
