That's What That Is

Sonic Twist’s® “That’s What That Is” highlights singer Judi Silvano’s ability to improvise music and words simultaneously. Guitarist Bruce Arnold initially follows her opening phrase, and then adds his own processed sounds, through the track’s many moods. For this video Judi called in dancer Maria Mitchell to interpret the music. Maria responded with her own spatial improvisations including a recurring motif of Time as she conjured up a sun dial marking the minutes and hours, underscoring the words Moment…Now…Before. The vocal becomes more intense is it goes from ruminations on Time to its relationship to identity. Judi and I worked together on coordinating Maria’s movements by literally slowing down the time in parts of the dance, and overlapping images where the vocal is highly processed.
