Choros from Michael Langan on Vimeo.

” In the tradition of Norman McLaren’s 1968 film Pas de Deux, Michael Langan and Terah Maher combine music, dance, and image multiplication to create a film that enhances our perception of motion. Choros features music from Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians.

Choros is an experimental film steeped in tradition, modernizing a visual echo technique developed for scientific study in the 1880s. A fascinating write-up by the filmmakers on the chronophotography technique is available at their indiegogo. ”
