On April 3, 2007 Kyron and David Molina performed at Melting Point Gallery in San Francisco, California.
Together, they improvised a live film score for Susana Aragon's short film "Personal
Luggage". Using electronic software and acoustic improvisation, Kyron and Molina
pieced the minimalist score together moment by moment, creating an ideal compliment to the
film. Mirrors were placed in front of the two performers so that they could see the images
as they were projected onto the screen behind them and respond musically to what they saw.
Molina played a variety of instruments including: cello, broken autoharp, flutes, bells,
water phone, water Kalimba, water spring machine, mini tabla and electric guitar, as well
as some unique instruments of his own creation.
Kyron processed the sounds as David played them, expanding, contracting, morphing,
looping and re-mixing them, combining them with electronic drones and beats, creating a
complex thick instrumental web.
During the following year, Kyron took the raw recordings of that night and produced
multiple re-mixes, variations and tangential explorations.
Melting Point is an audio artifact from that night of audiovisual experimentation and a
collection of the musical explorations that developed from it. Both elements are woven
together to form a continuous aural experience.
