Music: Leslie de Melcher
Dance: Leah Schrager
REVOLUTION 59 is a unique, one-of-a-kind, multilayered 3-dimensional work: It is a question, a challenge and a statement. 1) The question: You say you want a revolution? 2) The challenge: Saturating an iPod and its terminating ear at the frequency of 86 Hz at -13db for another 5 seconds after the piece is over; 3) The statement: Just look around you. Leslie de Melcher was born and educated in Paris, France and lived in New York City on 43rd Street for many years. He currently resides in Toronto, Canada. Some of his works have been published, some have won awards, and some have never been heard. Leah Schrager is a member of White Wave/Young Soon Kim Dance Company, apprenticing with Zvi Gotheiner's company, and dancing with Berlin-based choreographer Catherine Slusher. She collaborates with other artists on experimental interdisciplinary work, including art film, music video, gallery installation, print design, and rock show.
