Deborah Light (2017)
Sound Design & Music Composition
The sound score for Semi Detached was made up of pre-recorded interviews with Deborahs parents which were then played back on multiple sets of headphones for willing members of the audience to hear. Also montaged material and live minipulated filed recordings that were played out through a qudraphonic sound system to create audio movement within the space.
Semi Detached is excavation of Deborah Lights own life in an array of objects collected from the rocks and crevices of her mind and body. Deborahs condensed trajectory from chordate to choreographer and from mollusk to mother is an accelerated but otherwise totally convincing line.
