ijad dance company



Some of you may know that Ian collaborates with Ijad Dance Company, so far having written the music for four pieces which have been performed in London and Beirut over the past few years. This year has seen Ijad doing a piece called 'Requisitioned'. Ijad combines Arabic movements with contemporary dance, digital imagery / interactive multimedia, new circus and butoh / sculpture, set to Ian's hybrid Arabic / classical / techno soundscapes. Gamine it ain't! Ian has produced CDs of 'Chosen Lies / Delete the Bit' and 'Requisitioned' which you can buy through the Gamine boutique. Ian also has a MySpace page here where you can listen to or download some tracks.


To hear a couple of musical excerpts...: requisitioned: part 6 and requisitioned: part 9. You'll be needing Real Player again - if you don't have it, download it below.
