Lighting & Stage Design
Cleek Schrey's Masters Thesis Concert
April 10, 2016 @ Wesleyan Memorial Chapel
I worked with composer and friend of mine, Cleek Schrey, to develop a visual language for his masters thesis concert. The performance involved significant improvisation with eerie sounds and some folk tunes. As lighting designer, I made most of the lighting fixtures visible and simple, while adding color from a hidden source. To capture the mysterious sounds and portray the exploration of the sonic space, we kept the lights low and close to the performers, in order for light to interact directly with them. As the performance progressed, the light grew- performers would enter the stage and turn on their personal light bulb.
