One of three interrelated, commissioned pieces for 8 Days in June 2007 sponsored by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MoCAD). I worked with a small team of my students (credits above) to create these pieces meditating on and reacting to school shootings, with a focus on survival instincts, loss and compassion. This piece was installed as a projection at Max M. Fisher Hall along with Control, where both looped silently for 8 days with a curated selection of unique live accompaniment each day. During the festival, it was also on view silently at MoCAD along with Contract.
*The music included in this sample is by Christopher O'Riley who performed during the festival.
