From the composer: "This 30-minute score was a commission I received from CDD for the company's "Celebrate 30! Performance Gala" in spring 2013. The piece features electro-acoustic music, video body mapping and projections, integral lighting, unique costumes, and dancers interacting with vocalists Kamala Sankaram and Samille Ganges. I loved working on this project, and wish to thank CDDC for the opportunity to be part of their community."
