Sixty Second Serenade
Music: Todd Merrell
Dance: Kate Patchett and Melina Gac-Artiga
Sixty Second Serenade represents my continued fascination with discovering the soul that humans design into their machinery, and coaxing humanity from technology. It is a love song to those who have remained so devoted and sympathetic to me over the years: my beautiful machines. Todd Merrell studied composition and voice at Berklee College of Music, and with James Sellars of The Hartt School, and works primarily with single sideband shortwave radio, granular synthesis, and processing.
