This modular, site-specific work was designed around and recorded at historic Fort Worden in Port Townsend, Washington. The piece is grounded by an electronic score and comprised of 110 fragments: 55 composed short motifs for chamber music and 55 pieces from various invited improvisers. As a whole, they highlight the unique visual and acoustic elements of the Fortís architecture, from its concrete bunkers to the massive cistern. The space itself shaped the piece from foundation to performance. 55 is a collaboration of composer Wayne Horvitz, Yukio Suzuki (choreography and dance), Yohei Saito (video artist) and Tucker Martine (producer/ engineer).
