Excerpt from Psychagogy: Kroumatograph

Alexis Crawshaw

Kroumatograph is an installation study for a project in progress, Psychagogy. This larger work, which means “the leading of souls” in Ancient Greek, is both a transmedia song cycle and installation. Both both the performance and environment entail a new spatiotemporal approach to musical composition which structures musical form across the senses of sound, touch, kinesthesia/movement (of performers and spectators alike), vision, and olfaction.

Sponsored by the following UCSB entities: the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts, the Graduate Division, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, the Media Arts and Technology Program, the College of Creative Studies Music Composition, the College of Creative Studies Computing, the Department of Music, the Department of Theater and Dance, and the Classics Department.
