PRESERVATION 

Preservation is a collaborative audiovisual project that premiered at the Lincoln Center Atrium on February 2nd, 2017. The project aims to immerse the viewer in a world of impressionistic vignettes using sound, dance and microscopy to investigate themes of change, transformation, and reoccurring patterns found in nature. With a score composed by musician/composer Tommy Crane (of the band Late Bloomer and member of Port St. Willow) and performed live with Eliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost) and Colin Killalea (Albert Hammond Jr.) , Crane’s original score echoes the film using analog synthesizers and improvisational elements to create dynamic ambient soundscapes centered around a percussive counterpoint.
