Sound Bath for Bloch

website

Joshua Dumas, in collaboration with Sarah Cameron Sunde, creates a sound bath for Bloch: a 200 year old tree that Swiss arts duo Com&Com have been touring the globe with since 2011.

In a five hour durational performance at the Knockdown Center in Queens, Dumas interprets measurements gathered by Sunde to create a reverential soundscape for the ancient tree.

Preliminary video documentation here.

belladonna luna sonata

website

On an island estate, an aging maestro (alone but for his faithful butler) shares with a humble gardener his story of a life lived for music – oh, and the time he tried to destroy the world. A melanchomedy about music, lost love, memory, and literally world-shattering art.

Written by Robert Stewart
Directed by Greg Peters
Original Music by Joshua Dumas

Music for 36.5

website

36.5 is Sarah Cameron Sunde’s durational performance with the sea. Sunde stands for a full tidal cycle as water engulfs her up to her neck and then recedes again. Past iterations in Bass Harbor, Maine, Akumal, Mexico, San Francisco, California, and Katwijk aan Zee, Netherlands.

Composer Joshua Dumas has scored excerpts of the last two performances and created a full 12 hour score to accompany documentation of the Netherlands performance.
