cloisonné

Program Notes

Andrew Miller of Motion Ensemble in Canada commissioned a solo double piece that had a video component. The film is by Nana Tchitchuoa and juxtaposes many contained or precise movements: a clock mechanism, moving quickly back and forth, dancing by the National Georgian ballet, the detailed work of constructing delicate jewelry called cloisonné, and a man writing in a book. Taking the rhythm of the watch mechanism, the music continues this visual rhythm as the aural backdrop to the dancing.
