for dancer, baritone saxophone, vibraphone, percussion,
and live processed video (2008)
Winter Suite comprises three pieces for dancer, sound, and images in which the character of a young woman explores many different landscapes (both real, imaginary and/or subconscious) looking for answers in the cold, vibrant backdrop of winter. She is aided by strange people, creatures, and little things she finds along the way, including some Viking rune stones and a bright red, poofy hair clip. The Max/MSP/Jitter programming language is used to control live image processing during the performance.
