Score to PYLON II--choreographed by Coleman Pester //TMS
PYLON II is a multi media performance blending highly physical dance, active visual projections, and live-feed surveillance; blurring the line between observer and observed and is the second iteration of PYLON.
The ongoing project PYLON is concerned with themes of systematic fear and control placed on human bodies operating within modern society; between communal pressure and self-fulfillment, between surveillance and privacy, between unyielding architecture and fragile flesh. This is an investigation of watching and individuation. PYLON features dynamic choreography, architectural installation, and a complex quagmire of digital image gathering/projection.

Pillars is a stunning achievement for Sorey and perhaps a new high water mark in the post everything world. Xenakis Feldman and Cage are evoked as well as the work of Butch Morris. The three hour runtime is justified and I challenge you to find a dull moment. tlomiento
An extremely ambitious mix of: spoken poetry, synth, miscellaneous sampling; touches of salsa, jazz, afro, punk, Adventure Time; and I have no idea what else. As far as I know, no one else is doing anything remotely like this. bcesards
