1. The End, Light Blue
    by Juan Antonio Olivares and Eve Essex

    The End, Light Blue, an ensemble performance composed by Juan Antonio Olivares and Eve Essex, premieres at Shoot the Lobster on July 5th, 2012 at 7PM.

    Drawing from the possibility of translation between image and sound, Olivares and Essex have created a visual and text-based score inspired by post-production foley techniques. With the consultation of Marko Costanzo, a veteran Hollywood foley artist (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Ice Age), the artists have reinterpreted cinematic sound effects as a system of musical elements.

    Ten performers cycle through a variety of roles ranging from quotidian gestures to highly choreographed musical events. Everyday sounds are meticulously recreated by a small ensemble of instrumentalists; physical actions are dramatically and rhythmically amplified. A series of seemingly senseless events cue reactions within the group, in an evolving and organic accretion of sound.
