I’ve had some requests from folks to hear my score to Michelle Heffner Hayes’ latest modern dance piece “Collide”, that was performed in late April at The Lied Center.
Once I get video back of it, I’ll post it to YouTube or something, but in the meantime, here is a temporary location to hear a mid-quality mp3 of it. It’s not squashed into a little audio brick like our favorite alt/pop/rock/punk because it was designed for a concert hall, which means you really have to crank it up or the quiet parts will be inaudible in many listening environments.
I guess there’s not much to say about it – I’d like to think it’s got enough depth for repeated listens, and of course seeing it with its close sibling, the dance itself, is best. I really have to credit Michelle for her ability to communicate ideas, images, and feelings in wonderfully evocative terms that immediately begin conjuring up musical storms and reveries from the depths.
