Lady Dice and the Emerald Oyster Honeycomb - Complete Master Score

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • As a composer, I spend hours in my studio creating dense and complex electronic music.
    Onstage, this music is radically transformed as I become BlipVert, a performative alter-ego
    which fervently remixes and alters the music, furthermore adding ancillary frenetic physical
    reactions to the electronic textures. BlipVert’s physicality imbues it with conspicuous
    synaesthetic quality: sound and vision are intimately conjoined in BlipVert performances thereby
    portraying BlipVert as a compelling construct of visual-music. BlipVert epitomizes my oeuvre,
    which is ultimately defined by what I refer to as snapshot composition: a collection of
    contrasting creative ideas which are exhibited as a complex of interconnected parts. My doctoral
    thesis composition, "Lady Dice and the Emerald Oyster Honeycomb," a music-drama in five
    scenes for BlipVert, two percussion batteries, and two sopranos, attempts to expand BlipVert’s
    identity by thoroughly exploring the expressive possibilities of visual-music through various
    mediums: graphic scoring, interpretive conducting, color-composing, word painting, and
    electronic technology. Ultimately, Lady Dice and the Emerald Oyster Honeycomb represents a
    profound coalescence of expressive activities which formulate synaesthetic interdisciplinarity:
    interconnected properties working together which amplify the concept of visual-music and
    illuminate the essence of snapshot composition as a unique creative practice.
