A portrait of Merce Cunningham, Loops derives from a motion-captured recording of his solo dance for hands. His captured joints become nodes in a network that sets them into fluctuating relationships with one another, at times suggesting the hands underlying them, but more often
evoking complex cat’s-cradle variations or networks of nervous energy. As Cunningham reads from a boyhood diary of his first visit to Manhattan, his intonation patterns are propelled into a virtual version of a prepared piano.

This 2011 version completely remakes the work for 3D, with a new renderer and musical generation system.
