Upgrade! Boston: Moments of Inertia by R. Luke DuBois, with Todd Reynolds :: February 8, 2011; Doors open @ 6:30 pm. Performance begins @ 7:00 pm :: MIT Media Lab (E14), 6th Floor, Room 633, 75 Amherst Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts (map).

Moments of Inertia is an evening-length performance based on a teleological study of gesture in musical performance and how it relates to gesture in intimate social interaction. The work is written for solo violin with real-time computer accompaniment and video. Moments consists of twelve violin études written by R. Luke DuBois for Todd Reynolds – ranging from 1-10 minutes in length – each of which uses a different violin performance gesture as a control input for manipulating a short piece of high-speed film (300 frames-per-second) – of objects and people in motion.

[-empyre-] Ashley Ferro-Murray

“[…] What an exciting opportunity to engage with this topic, Critical Movement Practice

To start things off I will share some thoughts on my artistic work and academic scholarship, if you will allow me to temporarily bifurcate these two inseparable aspects of my career. As a choreographer who has a particular interest in digital media, I explore real-time dancer/ audience interactions with digital performance technologies including live video motion tracking and motion tracking sensors. My work with this technology has led me to question how digitally facilitated movements impact our physical awareness and stand relative to dance history. As a female choreographer, I find relationships between dance history and digital technologies particularly important as I consider social relations that might instantiate a classically masculinized audience gaze.
