60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/8/09) [Algadafe/Vernier/Jennings]

La vie amnagee-le quart d'heure
Music: Henri Algadafe and Philippe Vernier
Dance: Erin Jennings

Henri Algadafe and Philippe Vernier's first interest in music started with the guitar (rock and gypsy guitar). They studied at the national regional conservatory of Rueil and obtained prizes in harmony, orchestration and composition. They then studied "tape" music with Philippe Leroux and passed a DEM in electro-acoustic composition. Henri Algadafe now composes instrumental pieces, mixed music or pure electroacoustic. Philippe Vernier has written ensemble music, songs, film and stage music, and electro-acoustic pieces. "La vie amŽnagŽe-le quart d'heure" is built on sounds of everyday life. Sounds of indefinite pitch such as squeaking wheels, stone shoveling and compressors provide rhythmical elements.

Erin Hunter Jennings is on her 3rd 60x60, and is always happy to dance and collaborate especially with her sister, Faith Kimberling. They have been making dances together since they were little! Erin danced in NYC recently in Chattaqua! and abroad with Pilobolus and West Side Story at La Scala. She has danced in companies with Natasa Trifan, Charlie Moulton, and Erica Essner and performed recently with Yepdance,& DanceEntropy. Faith dances with the Isadora Duncan Co. under Lori Bellilove and has toured and performed with Young Soon Kim. See Erin & Faith this spring also with CEuledance, or dancing around on a west side roof
