The choreography is informed by research of kinesics and the associations used to distinguish action from affect; when a movement surpasses a physical function and becomes an emotional function. Each clip is given an improvised musical score that corresponds with rhythm of the movements. The clips are organized and layered based on sound; the construction of the visuals is determined by the arrangement of the assigned scores. This manipulation transforms the body into an instrument; the physical movements become an instrumental movement.
