Beautiful Catastrophes in Dallas
Live performance: 15 Jan 2010 --
Presented by: BillMeadows
Center for Creative Connections at the Dallas Museum of Art
Dallas -- USA

Austin-based composer William H. Meadows utilized OSCulator to connect multiple Nintendo Wiimotes to Kyma for a 15 January 2010 performance of The Butterfly Effect and Other Beautiful Catastrophes at The Center for Creative Connections at the Dallas Museum of Art. Meadows, in collaboration with choreographer Kerry Kreiman and members of the CD/FW dance company, used the Wiimotes to transform dancers' movements into controllers for sounds being generated live in Kyma to highlight the interplay between the physical and virtual worlds. Each performance of the piece is unique, the structure being based on concepts from chaos and catastrophe theory. A reviewer for the Fort Worth Star Telegram described the premiere: ...a fascinating kaleidoscope of sound and movement... It was a strange and wonderful scene. For more details, see Pegasus News.
