A Piece by Stephen Buck with Dawn Kramer

The piece was started as a contrasting idea to Dawn's Video Poem. I wanted to make work in cities and use music. It was shot on two different nights. On the second night, I asked Dawn to "wait". Of course, they added the overhead flags during the intervening day to mess up continuity. I was experimenting with camera placement. All the zooming and panning were done in post.

I got "Talking Hands" CD when Dawn and I went to the CD release party in Berlin at Cafe Tasso. I started working with Pitch and Toss after I made a couple of rough cuts and to my delight the video and music seemed to talk to each other.
