This piece was a collaboration between Lawrence W. Moore (music) and Liza Seigido (video). Moore composed the music in an effort to work with the small, almost instantaneous element of a snapping sound, generated by using an empty sync table. Moore generated the instrument in Csound and applied many parameters to it, which allowed him to create an adventure from using such a simple sound. Seigido created the video from a short, 7 second clip of video footage of US1 on the way back from the Florida Keys.

Act I Includes Begin End Cycle and End Cycle Begin, composed by Lawrence W. Moore for modular synthesizer components, fixed audio, fixed video, live voice, and live dancer. The dance choreography was composed by Brigette Cormier.
In the story, Shibeth has just died. Her spirit encounters a disembodied voice in the world beyond. She struggles with what this voice is asking her to do, let go of her self. The spirit becomes enraged as Shibeth resists. Perhaps there is a choice as to whether or not we allow consciousness to be destroyed and recycled upon death?

A Ring of Pearls was composed for the master cellist, Jason Calloway, by Lawrence W. Moore. The piece is an energetic structure composed of energetic structures. The ring is a 2 dimension outline of a sphere, and both come together in beauty when pearls and rings become one entity.

Lawrence W. Moore's piece, Establishment, for EWI and fixed audio and video media has been enhanced greatly in this performance at the Compositum Musicae Nova Compose Variety concert in March, 2015 with the dance performance and choreography of JoAnna Ursal. JoAnna's interpretation of the music has taken the piece to another level with her expressive movements, and intriguing uses of shadow and reflection.

Water is a voice processing piece composed and performed by Momilani Ramstrum, who asked Lawrence W. Moore to produce the video for the piece. Moore strove to express water at an elemental level as well as at an abstract level in complementing the sound of the piece. The gestures employed by the voice are highlighted, expressed, and brought into vivid, colorful life by the use of fractal imagery.
