1. The first performance of Semaphore on 26th October 2014, a part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas, at Covent Garden Theatre, Cambridge

    Choreography: Jane Turner; Text: Phil Terry; Music and programming: Richard Hoadley; Dance: Gwen Jones and Ann Pidcock; 'Cello: Cheryl Frances-Hoad; Clarinet: Kate Romano


    'Semaphore' works between dance, music and text. It is a collaboration between the choreographer Jane Turner, the poet and writer Philip Terry and the musician, composer and technologist Richard Hoadley.

    The primary focus is on live processes, data from the dancers' movements are used to trigger and modulate text, audio and music notation. This is in turn performed and in some cases fed back to the dancers whose movements are then influenced by the music and text, and so on. Ideally, there is a balance between gesture, whether based on movement, music or text and the resulting translation that is not too trivial but is also not so remote that the origin and its result do not feel connected at all.

    Automatic music for computerised piano and piano (red). The delay between notation and audio is deliberate to allow the pianist longer to prepare
