Castiglioni
Inverno In-Ver
New World Symphony, Miami
Harris Theatre, Chicago
A collaboration with Michael Tilson Thomas, creating an interactive visual world for Castiglioni's "11 musical poems for small orchestra" Inverno In-Ver.

Clusters of paper screens suspended from wires as a child's mobile, front and back projections with live written text and images, musicians both in front and behind, overhead projections of winterscapes and microscopic images of ice, crystals and glass
.

'The program book identified Jones as a "live video performer," and her video exegesis, which the artist cued to the musical performance from her laptop computer, seemed both a natural outgrowth of and complement to Castiglioni's icy vignettes. Three clusters of various-sized video screens were hung above and at the sides of the stage to display fluid, closeup images of snowflakes, snowscapes and, at one point, the silhouette of a human figure tumbling from screen to screen, accompanied by piercing blasts of woodwinds...

It was all extremely effective: The visual and aural elements enhanced rather than detracted from each other.'
