Hesitation is a film where dancers are responding to the architecture of a distorted spacetime. In creating the work, the performers were shown a real time video system that distorted the place and timing of their movements. The video is a composition from the experimentation. A metaphor for the formation of relationship, Hesitation depicts two individuals encountering one another in a space where movement is met with disruption. As one attempts to understand the other through uncertain exchanges, they find themselves powerfully connected.
The score was created by Daniel Peterson in SuperCollider and MATLAB using the processes of wavelet analysis and synthesis and granular layering.
