Dance for Solo Piano and Premiere Pro is a video work contributing to my doctoral research into pictorial representation.

The work was developed with pianist Rossella Rubini through a year-long EU funded residency project between Italy and the UK. The residency was initiated by Artakt and BM_Idea, and was supported by the Central Saint Martins research department, University of the Arts London. More about our working process is here.

(Note: the working title of the video was Keeping Time Again in reference to my 2012 video Keeping Time. Some older pages on this site use the working title.)

Early stages of the project were presented during an interim round-table discussion at the Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo (MAXXI) Rome, and the final works were screened following panel discussions in May and June 2013, first at the Museo Archeologico in Abruzzo, Italy then at the Platform Theatre at Central Saint Martins in London.

In the video Rossella plays Lunantica, a piece for solo piano by Enrica Sciandrone. And yes, I edited the video on Premiere Pro. A few people have asked about the lens we used to film the performance: it was a rather nice Voigtlander Nokton 25mm F0.95.
