Rhythm Study

Rhythm study by Coila-Leah Enderstein & Nicola van Straaten

A few months ago, dancer and choreographer Nicola van Straaten improvised a short section of movement, playing with the idea of a soundscape through the scraping and jumping of feet on concrete.

A few months later, pianist Coila-Leah Enderstein watched the footage and took this idea of a soundscape further by creating a piano score in response to the footage. Using prepared piano to add texture and layer, she responding musically to a visual rhythm.

Through collaborative play and dialogue, the two performing artists are left with a short film as the product of their experimental curiosity and craft.
