The good folks over at The Banff Centre have been publishing a gorgeous multimedia journal for the past couple of years called BoulderPavement. The latest issue is based around the idea of Body & Dance and features fabulous original artwork and compelling literary non-fiction, among other things.
I’ve been lucky enough to contribute regularly to BoulderPavement and I’m thrilled to be a part of this issue as well. For this original audio composition I decided I wanted to get at the question of the origins of rhythm, and the close relationship between music and our bodies that we sometimes take for granted.
Thinking about this, I remembered a great story told by Ustad Zakir Hussain when my colleagues and I interviewed him for a project called The Nerve. That became the basis for this mini-doc, a kind of “scored story” with original music and sound design.
