MIRC - film clips

February 18, 2019

An update on the film aspect of the piece! Now that I have turned in the score and parts, I am turning my focus to developing the website and also editing together the film footage that will accompany the piece. The MONUMENTs will have slideshows showing the data that I am sonifying. The INTERLUDEs I am not sure about yet (I have some work to do there!). The PEDESTALs and ARIAs will have accompanying films and I will draw on the following film clips in those. I think that the PEDESTAL movements will be primarily the rock quarry and stature carving-related films, while the ARIA movements will use the train footage. I am hesitant to post more about the film at this point, but I plan to explain my thinking once I have those films edited completely. The main focus with this piece is on the music. I hope the video component will provide commentary, context, and counterpoint to the aural experience. 

 

Many thanks to the MIRC (Moving Image Research Collection) located here in Columbia, SC at the University of South Carolina. They have been so kind and helpful with my requests.
