Perpetual Movement and Sound – Rashomon Effect, Part 1


Early in Perpetual Movement and Sound’s performance history we did a series of shows called The Rashomon Effect. This series was a reinterpretation of the Akira Korosawa film Rashomon where a crime is told from four different view points. For our “Rashomon effect”, we had four pairs of musicians and dancers respond to each other in a round-robin performance of improvised music, dance and video.

Below is an audio recording of the show.

Mikronesia – electronics
Helena Espvall – cello
