Actually Really was commissioned by The Northwest Film Forum as part of the Live At The Film Forum series 2011. Sound by Paurl Walsh/performer, Video by Dug Arney, choreography/performance by Ezra Dickinson.
Actually Really was the first stage in experimentation using motion censors attached to the performer to generate the sound for the performance in real time. The idea that we are playing with is filming a dancer improvising while having the motion censors attached, capturing both movement and sound generated by the movement. Next the composer takes the footage of the dancer improvising and generating sound, and composes the sound where by reorganizing the dancers movements. In the final stage the dancer learns the new composition by way of the reorganized and composed video footage. In this process we take the composer and turn him in to the choreographer, and take the choreographer and turn him in to the composer.
