July 5 - July 5, 2012
Reception: Thursday, July 5, 7 - 11 PM
Shoot The Lobster is pleased to announce The End, Light Blue, an ensemble performance
composed by Juan Antonio Olivares and Eve Essex, on July 5th, 2012 at 7 pm.
Drawing from the possibility of translation between image and sound, Olivares and Essex have
created a visual and text-based score inspired by post-production foley techniques. With the
consultation of Marko Costanzo, a veteran Hollywood foley artist (Brokeback Mountain,
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Ice Age), the artists have reinterpreted cinematic sound effects
as a system of musical elements.
Ten performers cycle through a variety of roles ranging from quotidian gestures to highly
choreographed musical events. Everyday sounds are meticulously recreated by a small
ensemble of instrumentalists; physical actions are dramatically and rhythmically amplified. A
series of seemingly senseless events cue reactions within the group, in an evolving and organic
accretion of sound.
