Collaboration with Dancer and Choreographer, JoAnna M. Ursal

JoAnna M. Ursal, dancer and choreographer

Dr. Lawrence W. Moore has recently presented his piece, Establishment for EWI and fixed audio and video media at the February, 7 2015 Compositum Musicae Novae Concert held in the Coral Gables Museum. The capacity crowd was treated to a new version of the piece with an added element that took the piece to a whole new level of profundity and meaning. Dancer and choreographer, JoAnna Ursal, performed a trance-inducing and spectacularly beautiful self-choreographed interpretive dance performance that drew the essence from the piece and manifested in physical motion.

After submitting Establishment for consideration to be presented in the concert, I received a call back from Miguel Nieves, of CMN, who asked me if I would talk to one of the board members, a dancer and choreographer named JoAnna Ural. He told me that she was interested in the piece and was wondering if I would like to present it with interpretive dance. I spoke with JoAnna over the phone several times before the concert, but we never met and we did not rehearse until the day of the concert. ON the day of the concert, JoAnna performed on a dry-run of the piece with the video, and what she did was utterly amazing. She utilized my idea of using a white cloth to integrate the video projection with her body form, and she took it to a level that I did not envision, and was blown away witht he result. - LWM

 

What's on the Horizon

New Sound Designs Coming

PD Logo

Dr. Moore has been working in Sound Design quite intesively in recent weeks and months. As a result, he has been working in Pure Data, Reaktor, and SynthEdit to create some new instruments and audio effects. In the PD creations, there is a great diversity of functions that his new creations will serve. some of the creations are straight-forward instruments that can be used with MIDI and other creations are more in the realm of specialized compositional tools. Moore has been creating some REaktor Ensembles that will soon be made puglic. These isntruments will combine the ease of a VST instrument, which Reaktor ensembles are with some out-of-the-box creativity that Lawrence W. Moore's sound designs are known for. Moore is experimenting with SynthEdit and is designing some synthesizers. It has yet to be decided whether Moore will release some independent VST plugins or Reaktor ensembles that use the free Reaktor Player for musicians to use Reaktor ensembles as VST plugins without actually purchasing Reaktor.

The Return of Wayfarer Music

Lawrence W. Moore of Wayfarer music

After a 3-4 year hiatus, Lawrence W. Moore has started to focus on Wayfarer music once again in his compositional time. The exploration of the more academic, ivory-tower sound has led Moore into a less-inspired state compositionally and he is now finding more fulfillment in returning to the original sound of Wayfarer while incorporating some of the gems he has discovered in recent years from the experimentation with programming and in-depth sound design. These skills of creation can be focused on music that has more heart and soul to it, and that is exactly what the new Wayfarer music has. In addition to Moore's compositional rejuvenation, the new sound of Wayfarer will also include the contributions of Moore's wife and colleague, Liza Seigido, who is a phenomenally creative vocalist and composer in her own right. This new sound will combine a return to the spirit of Wayfarer along with a journey to new realms of creativity. The work that Seigido and Moore are embarking on now is in line with the true meaning of Wayfarer.
