The score for a dance performance by choreographer Alexander Whitley and visual artists Marshmallow Laser Feast.
About the performance:
Visually striking and kinetically charged, The Measures Taken explores our interdependent relationship with technology. With the choreographic process rooted in the digital collaboration, the work is both a dialogue and a duet between human movement and the digital world.
At its core are questions of the role of technology in society and the contrasting ways we come to view the world in a culture highly mediated by digital technology. In the process, the piece explores the potential of technology to augment our self-image and change our understanding of what it means to be human.
The Meassures Taken was commissioned by the Royal Opera House and created in collaboration with visual artists Marshmallow Laser Feast, lighting designer Lee Curran, composer Rutger Zuydervelt and costume designer Oliver Townsend. The piece will premiered at the EXIT Festival at the Maison des Arts de Créteil, France on 1 & 2 April 2014 and had its London premiere at the Royal Opera House on the 15th & 16th May.

I go to sleep listening to this song, and I wake up in a beautiful dream state in the morning. It also helps me focus while I write and work. I was heartbroken when this song disappeared on Spotify, so the hunt began. I must say, this song was very difficult to find, but all the more rewarding when I found it. Jonathan Tilley

This is one of the highlights of this brilliant eilean series. I am not a great fan of spoken word releases, but this is atmospheric and gripping. The DVD is a worthy addition to the package. Thanks so much Mathias for another fantastic release! No fave track, as they are all engaging and well wrought!! Rinchen Choesang
