Composer, Quadraphonic live score performance for electronics.

Chronicling the violent suppression of a mutiny, Strike (1925) marks the celebrated Russian director Sergei Eisenstein’s first full-length film. His innovative editing perfected the use of montage as a unique alternative to traditional narrative structures and emphasized a collectivist approach to filmmaking.

Through the use of found sound and the manipulation of sampling I mimicked Eisenstein's collectivist approach and his editing techniques to create a seamless experience. I then took those sounds, and throughout the performance of the film, manipulated them live, moving them around the space, therefore creating an expansive and immersive experience.
