This project is currently in process. Follow @JenniferWester on Instagram to see the latest footage available of the working status!
This work seeks to expose in an impactful manner the auditory architecture of the skating experience on ice through musical composition of the scale of the skated sounds as identified and organized by me and my musical collaborator, Marco Garavaglia. The visual experience will be no less transportation in the final product as I work with videographer, Can Turkyilmaz, to capture a companion visual that breaks the traditional barriers to recognizing skates as instrument.
Decades of skating are coming together to create this experience!
Not to mention artists from 3 countries, U.S., Italy, and Turkey.
The DEBUT of the project is scheduled for
DECEMBER 2017 in HOLLAND at Experimental on Ice Arts Festival!
