Influenced by opposition, Oblique Theorem blurs the boundaries between mechanical and digital, geometric and non-geometric, exploring 'the 'choreography of sound.' Inspired by 'steampunk', the composition begins scratching, stretching, pulling and progresses into tension with sustained and harmonious notes which blur the brutal mechanical with musical tones. The sound design corresponds with an improvised physical score during which the dancers animate and sculpt the sound by manipulating the wires on the hacked game controllers (Gametrak) which are interconnected and fixed on the floor in a triangle formation. Data relating to position and length of the wires is programmed into MAX MSP.
The film is edited to further blur and push the boundaries of movement and time, creating a dynamic, dream-like narrative where the dancers are trapped and seduced by wires and sound.
