This residency sees Prest working with longtime collaborator, Benjamin Freeman on the creation of new compositions to be used in two of Prest’s upcoming multi-art projects. The first is Test Tones, which uses ambient and experimental electronic music as the basis for an audio/visual installation. The second is Discovery Engine, which draws on plainchant and power ballads to create the score of a new multi-art performance work.
