Inheritance

Inheritance is a piece for two dancers (written for the duo Roosna/Flak) using a webcam and live electronics (Max8).

It deals with the fact that every generation inherits the world from the previous one. With all the good and bad in it. In the piece, the dancers take turns and are every time tracked for about 2,5 min with a webcam. Their movement creates an audio track, which starts playing when the next dancer hits the stage.

Additionally, there is a soundscape where natural bird sounds are deconstructed into harsh electronic sounds over time. After several cycles, the dancers create a massive wall of sound, consisting of several sound layers they created, almost unaware of their impact on the soundscape sound.
