Tower of Mirrors

 

In Tower of Mirrors, composer and turntable artist David Shea continued to explore the fine line between sound and image. This solo performance was structured to resemble a collage, amalgamating electric music made utilizing samplers with snippets from his existing recordings, British experimental dancers, and Hong Kong action films. Part of The Kitchen’s 1997 program, Mixing Signals, Shea’s Tower of Mirrors consisted of three parts including Alpha, Hsi-yu Chi, and Satyricon, and all of which were introduced by the composer.
