The piece of music I chose is titled 'Caresse' written by Erik Satie in 1897. A very delicate, melancholic piece that has a particular emotive feel and rhythm to it. My intention was to create a video environment / projected backdrop that would accompany or inspire a contemporary dance performance similar to Klaus Obermaier's 'Apparition'. I attempted to give the impression that the particles are dancing together at the outset, then seperate into individuals, passing across one another at suitable moments and ultimately returning to one.
The title of the music 'Caresse' seems to indicate that Satie wanted the lower notes on the piano to feel like they are caressing the higher register notes or vice versa.
