For night’s swift dragons cut the clouds full fast (2017) is a collaboratively devised work with Alejandro T. Acierto for modified clarinet, light, mylar installation, and movement. A light apparatus inside the tube of the clarinet alters the flow of air through the resonating body of the instrument and requires adaptive embouchure and fingering. Throughout the course of the work, Acierto moves through a choreography of breath, vocalization, fingering, bell positioning and bodily contortion to expose a resultant choreography of light and sound changes reflected on an immersive mylar installation. Light affects movement, which affects sound, which in turn affects light again in an endless feedback loop. Video by Dan Nichols mediates the experience of live performance with an intimacy that perhaps only film can capture, adding a layer to the work and shifting it into an entirely new artistic paradigm.
