DVD Volumes 1 and 2 include a broad range of studies involving a variety of video explorations, computer animations based on dynamical systems algorithms, music synthesizer-driven laser animations, and full and excerpted recordings of studio sessions and live concert performances I did with various collaborators -- dancers, video artists, and musicians.
DVD Volumes 3 and 4, called Pythagoras & Pellegrino In Petaluma, contain music synthesizer-driven, animated laser imagery -- visual music meditations based on Pythagorean principles articulated as an approach to performance that is, in fact, a type of real time composed walking tour through the various states of dynamic equilibrium found around the intersections of stereo wave trains whose fundamental frequencies have whole number ratios. The meditations are video-appropriate examples of laser animations that are created via a real time compositional process, a process that can be thought of as a dance to, from, and around those intersections.
The titles of the pieces included on the DVDs can be seen as Sections Five through Eight of The Book's Table of Contents.
