Jesse Bannister

Jesse Bannister builds his innovative research as a musician and composer on what he refers to as Sympathetic Resonance. He examines the spatial sound created between his saxophone compositions and the expansive echo resonating as he plays into the interior of a piano.

Jesse’s music will serve as the lifeforce from which the dancers build their energy. The power of the paintings and music will merge with the movement of the dancers as they learn to relate to one another, the environment around them, and find a deep understanding of their mind and body. The visual and sonic art in the project will almost act as the Muses did for the Greek god Apollo, elevating the dancers to full, intelligent, and able versions of themselves.
