Music from BalletLab's "Origami" which premiered on 13 July 2006
in Melbourne. Music created by David Chisholm, with some tracks
played by Silo Quartet. The CD also includes four short
animations by Rhian Hinkley.
The ancient art of Japanese paper folding, Origami, is the title for and inspiration behind this new dance performance by artistic director, choreographer and founder of Ballet Lab, Philip Adams. The music for this production was composed by David Chisholm, and performed by the Silo Quartet. The work will be performed at the Sydney Opera House in August and there are plans to stage it in San Francisco in 2008.
"ORIGAMI explores the possible dialogue between dance, visual art, and choreographic design. The starting point for David Chisholm's music for ORIGAMI is the European grouping of the string quartet. The structure of the music is built as if opening up one giant fold, like a reverse origami, flattening out the memory of the paper, not to erase it, but to create a place from whence it is possible to begin again."
Phillip Adams, Choreographer
