Album Notes
"Metallurgy" is a journey from a dystopian material world to clear skies and human connection. Both the music and the movement build on techniques of the classical tradition in a contemporary way. The score brings together string quartet, percussion (in particular metal, conceptualizing here a crucible), piano and classic electronic music instruments with ambient sounds such a the primordial breath and ocean sounds.

"Carmina Terra" Is composed using the motif of spirals: the spirals of the earth, the spiral of the galaxy, the water swirling down a sink, and the spiral of the nautilus shell. A primordial shape present in our very DNA.
The central section of the work is about the transcendence of spirit in the relationship between two people. Here again the dance movements and music motifs are inspired by spirals and touch upon the nature of ultimate consciousness. This slow section is framed by the fast first section, Spirals, which recognize and explores our humanity, and the third section, a celebration and culmination of the journey, a joyous counterpoint of movement.

“Metallurgy” was premiered at the University of North Carolina School of the Art by the School of Dance in February 2015 at the Stephens Center, Winston Salem, NC, and at the Ailey Citigroup Theater, NYC by ABT Studio Company in April 2015.
Set by Joseph Tilford, costumes by Eduardo Sicangco.
