    “55: Music and Dance in Concrete” was premiered in the bunkers of Fort Worden in Pt. Townsend, Washington. A myriad of concrete spaces make up the fort, and the piece was created both from and in those spaces. In June 2012 the original sounds for the electronic score were recorded in a variety of spaces at the fort with twelve musicians and engineer/producer Tucker Martine. For the remainder of the summer composer Wayne Horvitz edited and manipulated the recordings to create a suite of electronic songs. In September 2012 video artist Yohei Saito and choreographer Yukio Suzuki spent a month with Horvitz and Mr. Suzuki’s “Kingyo” company at the site creating and installing the piece. The work took place in four small, underground rooms over the course of an hour, with the audience moving from room to room. Because of the space the audience size was limited. The piece was performed three times per day over the course of two days. Between performances the video and music ran on a loop so audiences could explore the space. The general public walked 20 minutes to reach the site; generators provided power for light and sound; and small shuttles were provided for people unable to walk to the location. Video footage was shot during the dress rehearsal due to the size of the space, the audience, and the low light. The performers are Nao Ashimine, Yukio Suzuki, Taeko Horii and Haruka Akagi. Musicians involved in the score include Briggan Krauss, Beth Fleenor, Trio Pardalote, Maria Mannisto and Eyvind Kang. Sound by Wayne Horvitz, Video by Yohei Saito.
