SFX to Dance (May, Oct 2009)

Motion evokes noise, and noise evokes motion. This is because in nature, noise comes from movement, and movement usually generates noise.

When it comes to the arrangement of noise and movement, choreographers usually build against music. Music is a structure of percussive and otherwise physically evocative noises, giving both the dancer and audience a baseline for kinetic expectation.

These two videos were built without music. The movement sequences were improvised, and a soundscape was designed in post-production to match the physicality. By removing the factor of music, these videos give a fresh perspective on the relationship between noise and visual motion.
