RAW-(Material) at Weaverville Yoga - VIDEO SCREENING

Dissemination of the RAW-(Material) project Nature Specimens as a live video screening performance.

The RAW-(Material) Nature Specimens video screening took place in the Weaverville Yoga studio space on Sunday May 15 2016 at 6pm.
It was presented as a live performance event with narration and poetic text from my journal, plus live improvised sound in collaboration with musician Elisa Faires (please refer to the Performance report for information about Elisa.)

I created a Power Point as the vehicle to present a series of select videos from my Nature Specimens journal series that were each five minutes long or under and at a satisfactory stage of editing. Some of the pieces already had original sound that worked well and some had a sound score I had created and added to the video. For the other pieces that did not have sound, Elisa and I created live sound as the piece was playing.
