IN THE KEY OF CH'I

2015, video, 29 minutes, SILENT

by Katy Martin

with camera by Bill Brand

Premiered at THE VISION FESTIVAL as an on-stage projection

Conceived for The Vision Festival 20, this work premiered during a live concert by Marilyn Crispell and Gerry Hemingway.  As an on-stage projection, the piece in its original form was meant as a visual complement to the music.

As a silent film, In the Key of Ch'i draws on minimalist ideas from the 1970s, using repetition and a slow, dreamy pace to draw - but not capture - the viewers' attention, creating a kind of subjective space.
