STAGE was composed as the score for the middle piece in a trilogy of works, CAST STAGE AUTHOR, by choreographer Yanira Castro and realized by her company, a canary torsi. The trilogy premiered in September 2017 in three venues in NYC. STAGE was first performed at Abrons Art Center in Manhattan.

The musicians perform on the Wall of Metals, a homemade instrument comprised of a 10-foot long sheet of steel, used as a resonator, with multiple cymbals, prayer bowls, and brass rods attached to it. Textural sounds were also produced by activating spinning cymbals attached to the rotating blades of box fans.

This recording was made on February 1, 2020 at Amherst College in Amherst, MA.

Scott Smallwood: Wall of Metals, spinning cymbal, electronics
Suzanne Thorpe: Wall of Metals, spinning cymbal, amplified flute and electronics
Yanira Castro: voices in Preparation

Additional sounds from the performers on stage (cue calling, claps, footfalls, etc.) were made by dancers Leslie Cuyjet, devynn emory, Luke Miller, and Darrin Wright, and stage technicians Kathy Couch and Reilly Horan.

Mastering engineer: Doug Barber

The Wall of Metals was inspired by Peter Warren's Steel Cello, as introduced to me by Sarah Warren, and was fabricated with significant help from Noah Modie and Oxbow Design Build in Easthampton, MA.
