PEREGRINATION is a multimedia work combining stunning landscape cinematography and live video processing along with composed electronic audio and live improvised percussion elements. Intended to take the viewer on a journey from the comfort of their home, this project is a collaboration designed for presentation using modern video conferencing platforms (Made for Pandemic™). It was presented eight times over four nights from November 30 through December 3, 2020.

Each premiere event had a limited digital audience gathering to allow for intimate conversation and viewing experience. The artists provided background information on the collaborative process, production details, and their vision for the project. After each presentation of the work, there was a Q&A period and a general discussion between artists and audience.

All eight live performances can be heard here:
