In the sphere of religious practices and in psychology it denotes circular images which are drawn, painted, modeled, or danced." -- Anthony Storr from "The Essential Jung" "An ambience is defined as an atmosphere, or a surrounding influence: a tint. Ambient music is intended to induce calm and a space to think. It must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular." -- from Brian Eno's original liner notes for Ambient 1: Music for Airports inside/outside 00 ambient/reactive performance/sound installation with 12 speakers arranged in a circular (mandala) formation with four sources of sound: live mixed computer sound (real-time mix/ pre-recorded loops of sound), and live sampled sound, MIDI guitar, MIDI flute, electronics, and ambient sound from outside with computer illumination from beneath and ambient and environmental footage. The installation will stand alone. Dancers move very slowly within the performance space triggering sound and video in the computer with foot switches located around the installation. The configuration of the circular formation is based on the idea of the mandala. The sound and movement is also circular. The sound is looping continuously with real-time improvised music as the loops of sound with digital delay and MIDI instruments interact to create a spiraling soundtrack. The movement by the dancers is also based on the mandala formation and is a continual attempt to maintain balance in a world that is environmentally damaged. The piece is an attempt to center -- striving for the ideal image of a mandala. /t [you're on this list because you're a friend of mine, because you asked me to put you on this list, or because you put me on YOUR list.
