60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/7/09) [Vernon/Williams]

The Indecisive Moment
Music: Mark Vernon
Dance: Jessica Wiliams

Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based sound artist, musician and radio producer with recordings released on Gagarin records, Staubgold, Textile and Pickled Egg. He was a founding member of Glasgowâs pirate art radio collective, ÎRadio Tuesdayâ, a community radio station which broadcasts innovative mixes of art and music. The Indecisive Moment is composed from field recordings taken at Recyclart, a multi-functional arts space in Brussels. An imaginative young man with aspirations to news reporting tells some pretty tall tales. Over a backdrop of sirens and circling helicopters he gives the latest update on the kidnapping of Jean-Pierre, or perhaps a ransom demand?

During precious free time, Jessica Williams has had the pleasure of presenting choreography in various venues throughout NYC including Dance New Amsterdam, Triskelion Arts and the DUMBO Dance Festival. Jessica derives her artistic influences from contemporary ballet and Merce Cunningham's chance elements. Randomly assigned isolations of the body initiate a chain-reaction of fluid momentum. By coinciding chance with pre-determined repetition, her work illustrates the dialectics of free will versus destiny.
Collaborator: Alexis Maxwell
