May Waves Rise From Its Floor
performance for custom 16mm film projector, approx. 45 minutes, 2018
May Waves Rise From Its Floor follows in Hallé's career long practice of researching and building custom-made projection devices to be used in collaborative shows. For this project, Hallé continues his method of using live manipulation of candle light with broken pieces of glass and breathing to illuminate 16mm film. The ability to spontaneously create and adapt the visuals has led Hallé to perform this show with a diverse range of renowned improvising musicians.
