Music in Dance

As I have talked about in other posts, I am very interested in Dance Film and finding new ways to express dance through film. For all of my dance film projects at OSU so far, I have created my own music, but I haven’t had proper music editing tools (in fact I was using a video…

The Gates of Hell
