Drums Downtown: City Life
City Life was performed February 24 & 25, 2012 at the Capitol Theater, Columbus as part of the Drums Downtown event created by the OSU School of Music, in collaboration with the Department of Dance and ACCAD.
Alan Price produced Real Time computer animation to accompany the live ensemble performing Steve Reich's 24 minute composition, City Life. Behind the performers, a 35 x 20 foot rear projection screen displayed the computer animation using an array of HD projectors. The animation was rendered in real time from a computer back stage, and was performed in synch to the live music using a handheld game controller.
