Collisions Festival, 2015
This live drawing performance was a collaboration with pianist Imma Setiadi, who performed the Beethoven Sonata 8 in C minor Op. 13 as part of the Collisions Festival at the London College of Speech and Drama. With Setiadi playing in near darkness, Dalton draws on a computer tablet with a stylus, layering marks and colours, in response to the music. The undulating, shifting images create an abstract visual accompaniment to the notes, the juxtaposition of image and sound breathing a fresh element into the audience’s journey through this iconic sonata.
