Chain of Circumstances (2021)

Created as a collaboration between composer Joseph Klein, pianist Richard Shuster and dancer Jordan Fuchs, Chain of Circumstances creates a space of heightened attention to sound, tone, gesture, time, space, movement and memory, in which pianist and dancer respond to the decision-making of each other in the moment of performance, while working within the constraints of the music composition, which provides the foundational structure. Conceived as a series of disparate, distinctive, and relatively static musical states it provides an ever-changing sonic canvas of intriguing psychological spaces and has been presented in a variety of formats including digital sound manipulation and video projection.
