Species Niches 1
OMI INTERNATIONAL ARTS CENTER // GHENT, NEW YORK // JUNE 2014
+ Performance, June 13, 2014.
During the first iteration of performances in the Species Niches pavilion in June 2014, performers and musicians circled the pavilion and its amphitheater-like clearing, animating the audience who turned and followed the performance around the field. The June 2014 performance was choreographed by Silas Riener and performed by Riener, Rashaun Mitchell and Cori Kresge. The original score was composed by Loren Dempster, with a musical performance by Alex Waterman (cello), Christa Robinson (oboe), Erica Dicker (violin), Andrew Drury (percussion) and Loren Dempster (cello, electronics and composer). Each musician performed improvisatory sounds using the oak members of the pavilion as a percussive instrument.
