Aqua Madora was created in close collaboration with the choreographer and video artist Ana Baer-Carrillo and the dancer and choreographer Dani Beauchamp. The work was developed and refined over a number of years but began its life as a series of improvisations and tuning experiments on a piano in Colorado.
