Daniel Belton / New Zealand
AXIS – anatomy of space – creates a unique fusion of music and dance film for dome cinema. AXIS is a collaboration between Good Company Arts and renowned artists Joyce Beetuan Koh, PerMagnus Lindborg, Tanya Carlson, Jac Grenfell, Donnine Harrison and artists of the Royal New Zealand Ballet with artistic director Daniel Belton. We are each made up of photons. Photons are particles of light. Light is inspiration. Every space has an ‘anatomy’. The visualisation of sound for AXIS arrives through a music notation system synchronized to the generation of pure light – expanded points and lines. This virtual acoustic architecture creates a dialogue with the dancing figure – illuminating song cycles in a cosmic choreography of light.
