dc.description.abstractQuicksilver (2014) is a composition for dancer, cello, Kyma and >>>projection technology (11 mins). The piece operates on 2 levels: >>>firstly as an operetta {of sorts} that plays out an imaginary rehearsal >>>of Adrian Leverku¨hn, the main character of Thomas Mann¹s Doktor >>>Faustus (1947), conducting his composition The Lamentation of Doctor >>>Faustus whilst in the final stages of his syphilitic induced death. In >>>this scenario the cellist could be perceived as Mephistopheles, >>>conjuring up sounds and music beyond Leverku¨hn¹s compositional >>>ability. Secondly, as a hypermedial organism in which the boundaries of >>>individuality are blurred through the interaction of digital >>>technology, and creativity is fused selflessly within a lived >>>understanding of a whole instrument.en
