About the Grant

$30,000 to support Fifty-Five: Music and Dance in Concrete (MAP 2011), a collaboration between composer and keyboardist Wayne Horvitz, dancer and choreographer Yukio Suzuki, and producer and engineer Tucker Martine.

About the Project

Fifty-Five: Music and Dance in Concrete for chamber ensembles by Wayne Horvitz and 55 short improvisations will be recorded in the bunkers and cistern of Fort Worden in Port Townsend, Washington. Recorded by Tucker Martine, these segments will be edited and manipulated by Horvitz and Martine to create an electronic suite to be played throughout the bunkers of Fort Worden for two weeks in August 2012.

In addition, Yukio Suzuki will choreograph dances for the suites. The final performances at Fort Worden will be a culmination of the combined elements—choreographed dance, electronic scores, and music—amplified and reconstructed live.

In the fall of 2012, Suzuki and Horvitz will reconstruct and repurpose the piece within and around the Arizona State University Art Museum. Work-in-progress performances and workshops will take place in Seattle, Washington, leading up to the premiere.
