Here's a selection from noitcelfeRReflection by composer Emily Kalies; this DVD recording was done in July 2011 for PhD submission, but the piece has been performed many times around the UK since its premiere at Sensorium in January 2010. Texts come from The Pillow Book and contemporary female writers in the form of a diary or journal. The live performer interacts in a collaborative and improvisatory manner with the audio and video, which mirrors the characters in her own fragmentary persona. Background vocals by Mary E. LarewRobin Bier and Graham Bier; backing video by Rachel Saunders and Fiona Bianchi.
