Martha Mooke’s Dreaming in Sound: An Experiential Performance
Dreaming in Sound is an immersive large scale work for electric viola and electronic processing with interactive video (created by pioneering software artist Scott Draves). Dreaming in Sound is inspired by the sleep stage REM and the concept of lucid dreaming which evokes the chaotic state vs. orderliness of the dream realm. The score includes data collected from the audience to create a collaborative dream score.
Pioneering composer/electro-acoustic violist Martha Mooke is a leading Yamaha and Eventide Artist/clinician in demand as performer, composer and educator.
She is Artistic Director/violist of the avant garde Scorchio Quartet, featured on David Bowie’s Heathen CD, and has played with Barbra Streisand, Peter Gabriel, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Elton John, Trey Anastasio, Lou Reed and Patti Smith.
