Reflections II

Reflections is back with another improv by Sarah Rillo!

She improvised for about 20 minutes total. These shots were some of the moments I captured with the handheld Mavic Pro. I composed the music entirely after seeing the recorded footage. The song is called, "Or Folly".

1:08

This is a piece I wrote overnight to commemorate Tulsa's partial eclipse, which peaks today at 1:08 PM.

Today is the Solar Eclipse in North America. I'm staying in Tulsa and watching from home, which means I won't get the whole experience. I would have loved to travel to the path of totality, but life didn't allow for it. So instead, I'm celebrating here at home, where we will see 89% of the sun covered.

Tulsa has a full eclipse on the way in 2045. A lot will be different then, so in a way this piece is also about our future, and what we hope to accomplish by then. Today is only a glimpse of what's to come.

Happy Eclipse Day, Tulsa.

-Aaron

This was the experiment:

Find a location, improvise a dance based on the setting (one attempt), then score the music to the film, based on the dance.

Teleport

Teleport

Use your imagination.

My silhouette watched quietly
As the storm rolled in
But truly my mind was far away

I traveled to distant worlds
And times that have yet to begin
Because no one was here to make me stay

Say those worlds aren't real
Reality cannot be bent
If you were not there to wake me up
Then that is where I went
