Detail of Double Escapement
March 26th, 2010
duration: 42 minutes
An arresting action and song cycle that explores the inner-workings of a haunted woman and the time she has lost, performed through choreography, spoken text, and original song accompanied by live harpsichord. The piece re-codifies samples from resources including Victorian mourning practices, the Spiritualist movement, clock mechanics, paranormal television shows, YouTube home videos, Janet Jackson, Kate Bush, writings of Ben Marcus, and the films The Snake Pit and Dancer in the Dark.

Featuring live harpsichord by Truman Bullard.
