flight plan was a collaborative piece with mikeal stevens as a part of his master’s thesis at the memphis college of art and design. mikeal’s thesis, which you can find on his website, addresses the flow moment, when one is so focused on what one is doing, time becomes meaningless. for both of us, this happens during art production. also, mikeal experiences this during skydiving, whereas I experience this during music composition.
flight plan combines art, music, skydiving, and collaboration itself: during the performance, performers were tethered to my fingers via strings which resembled parachute cords. these cords operated the elevators on the wing system mikeal constructed and wore for the piece. there was a literal link between us during the piece.
