Penumbra is a new interdisciplinary composition for solo percussionist/performer, interactive video projections, and electronic music collaboratively composed by David Bithell and Terry Longshore. With visual inspiration drawn from traditional and contemporary shadow play practices and combined with the iconography of percussion performance, we aimed to create a work that focuses on the human form situated in a technologically saturated atmosphere. The piece explores the gestural implications of percussion performance, as well as the audience’s expectations about how physical gestures and percussion manifest in sound and image.
