On July 30, 2015, Heather Trommer-Beardslee and I participated in our local Art Battle. Visual artists gathered to create new art in 2 hours and this year, we decided to throw a dance/music collaboration into the mix. We started at 6 PM and by 8 PM we had a 4 minute dance piece. While Heather worked with our 3 talented dancers (working on hot asphalt on a rather warm evening) I sat at my laptop cranking out music using Ableton Live. The structure of the music really took all of its cues from the choreography.
