Undertow is a durational dance performance. The dancing technique of this piece is inspired by butoh dance.
By viewing the full three hour version of this dance performance one can think of the words acceptance, space, insecurity, self reflection ...etc
Music is functioning as an effect in which supports the ambiguity of the performance while giving enouch space to the dance language.
Music is made of overtone scales performed by cello, white and pink noise, momentary attack and sustains of piano and finally electronical manipulations of the recordings.
