Eight Spaces of Empty Place

Eight Spaces of Empty Place is a series of variations on Bernard Herrmann’s score for the 1976 film Taxi Driver, consisting of quotations, ambient extrapolations, and collages derived from electronic processing. The piece will be staged and performed from within an interior along 14th Street and projected into the street as a transformed but still somewhat recognizable version of the film’s music. The variations from Taxi Driver conjure the “dirty old New York” constructed through contemporary nostalgia and project it into the increasingly uniform city of luxury consumption that continues to displace this image.
