Primary imagery for the installation is drawn from the documentation of the site specific performance. This footage is supplemented by individual performative vignettes of the soloists and the conductor, as well as extended audio and video studies of the glacier itself. Primary footage for the installation was shot on a RED Epic camera allowing the installation is presented on two HD projectors in an ultra-wide aspect ratio. The sound for the installation was assembled from field recordings, audio documentation of the performance at the glacier and indoor recording sessions leading up to the outdoor performance. The installation is not meant to be a substitute for the performance, but rather an immersive and independent artwork.
