Before the premier of (in)visible in 2015, the dancers didn't hear the music until they were onstage performing. Here is the original music for the piece, suggested by original cast member Michael Landon Rivera. This bold, conceptual track caused some audience members to plug their ears in response to the bleeps, hums, and human sounds that change every 30 seconds, but we think it's perfect. Originally, this music by So Takahashi accompanied an art exhibit comprised of thirty photographs of empty and abandoned rooms. 

Selected by TD friend and collaborator (filmmaker) Gus Reed, this electronic opera (the soundtrack to Alwin Nikolaïs's choreography) was performed at Opera de Hambourg, Feb, 1973. Hear oscillating electronics, processed choral sounds and exploratory sounds from this influential French composer & electroacoustic music and sampling pioneer.

Selected by the choreographer, Exsultate, Jubilate, K 165, (Latin: “Rejoice, Be Glad”) three-movement motet (short sacred composition for voice sung with or without an orchestra) was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1773, when the composer was still in his teens. (A revision of the instrumentation and text followed in 1779 or 1780.) While the recording quality isn't perfect, the performance of Cecilia Bartoli leaves little to forgive. 

Suggested by muse and dancer Allegra Herman, Murcof is the performing and recording name of Mexican electronica artist Fernando Corona.Murcof's music is sparse, minimalist, electronica. Many of his compositions are founded on abstract, glitchy, sometimes complex electronic percussion. Harmonic and melodic influences come from classical music (modern classical music, musique concrète, holy minimalism, micro polyphony, & baroque music), ambient music, drone music, berlin school synthesizer music, ethnic music and free improvisation.

Or, you are really, really curious about what this big ol' show is going to be like. It's going to be rad. And another rad thing is that we are going to pay the dancers.
