Sui Generis

Sui Generis was written in 1999, and was commissioned by Andrew Kepka, then a graudate student in the dance program at Northern Illinois University. The dancers in this piece hang from a wall, and do not touch the floor until the very end of the piece. There are five sections to the dance. This work was premiered at a dance competition at Illinois State University in March of 1999, where the dance won an award for choreography. The music was composed using Max/MSP on the Macintosh computer, with sound sources being the Korg O1/W synthesizer and some sounds created on the NeXT computer using the Score program. The title of the piece means "Unique".
