I have the films of the last couple of times we made a performance using the itango pogram, so I’m thinking I will start with those.
I have to imagine the sounds that go with the images in the film…

For the projected images, I think the big rich ripples (where I’ve set the damping to let the ripples live a long time) should be a low humming slowly pulsing warm sound…. Vhoommvhoommvhoom…maybe from the bandoneon or an electric base guitar.
Then, when the ripples are small and following quickly behind the dancers it would be more tinkling cool sounds….  Tingtingtingtingtinklenklenlkenlkenkle… fading to nothing. Water dripping onto something metallic, or little wind chimes…

Another layer, I want to make some electronic sounds to mix with the real instruments…
Maybe could pour water over some circuit board that might make fizzing electronic noises, like Phil’s circuit bending. I’ll have to play around and record it, then sample a good bit.

Then there could be an instrument for each of the dancers, a male and a female. Bandoneon or base guitar for the man and flute or violin for the woman?

Sometimes the ripples pulse, when I change the damping and it catches up with itself. This could be mirrored with repetitive sounds, a manual echo, each repetition of the phrase getting quieter.
