This work was inspired by the music of Alex Davis and the architecture of Santiago Calatrava (Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum) and Kevin Huse (Atrium of the Indianapolis – Marion County Public Library). The duet is performed within changing environments created by integrated full-stage rear projection and full-stage front projection onto a downstage scrim.
