Sculptor/dancer/acoustic artist Ken Emig's work deals with echoes and reflections, so when he and composer Edmund Eagan collaborated on a live performance for the opening of Emig's show at La Filature in Ottawa, they tried to express these same ideas using sound and movement. Eagan performed in one room (with light boxes) and Emig simultaneously performed in a video shooting space, a room featuring his dish sculpture and another room housing his cube sculpture. The spaces were sonically linked with Eagan using Kyma, the Continuum, a Mbiraski, Logic to process a microphone-feed from Emig's room, creating echo loops using delay lines and using the two different spaces as resonance before sending the resulting mix back into Emig's room. The audience was free to migrate through the gallery during the performance. Emig danced in front of a dual projection / dual camera video feedback setup creating multiple echoes of him on the wall, and a camera directly above Eagan captured his hands on the Continuum surface, projecting the image onto the same wall. This triple projection was then captured AGAIN by another camera, which projected it into the room where Eagan was performing. A DVD is in the works.
