i luminate ~ARTISTS OF LIGHT

I am feeling privileged to be a very small part of this show.

I played cello on several compositions by Christopher Tignor (Slow Six) really beautiful pieces~
recorded specifically for i luminate ARTIST OF LIGHT

at  The Duke Theater on 42nd streeet  11.23.12 to 01.05.13 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s some kind of crazy wireless lighting program that is attached to the performers outfits and linked to the music.  A light show through dance… kind of like the those laser light shows only it’s actual people dancing with cool choreography.
They were on American’s got Talent. I don’t think they won,which is probably for the best as those things go.
I’m definitely going to go see them- and not just so I can hear myself.

This is their blurb:
