• Piper at the Gates of Dawn (c. 15:00)

    Based on a short story by Richard Cowper (used with permission), this piece also uses the Mandala software, in this instance chromakeying the performer in front of previously created computer graphics. It is intended as a fantasy, a fairy tale, with an appeal for children, in which the three animal characters, a deer, a frog, and a bird, are transformed by the beautiful music of the Piper into their mythical equivalents: a unicorn, a dragon, and a firebird. Eventually the Piper is transported into outer space, where he and the mythical creatures romp among stars, planets, and galaxies.
