I'm working with choreographer Michelle Thompson Ulerich on a new dance piece for the Spark Collective. While I've written a few things for dance before, this is my first experience with this process. We talked about what the piece would be about on a broad level in terms of topic, tone, etc, then I set off to write the music, and now Michelle is making a dance to the piece I wrote. This behind the scenes event was my first time seeing what they are working on, and oh boy is it exciting. Our piece, The Always Puzzle of Changing, was one of six featured, all of which will be programmed in their upcoming Collections of Change -- tickets go on sale September 1st!
