Bizarre how a city situated in the middle of the United States can be one of vast extremes. Bold lines divide rich and poor, black and white, and summer and winter; Chicago is a city that prides itself on the endurance of its ups and downs. Through the marriage of sound and image, Daniel Knox and John Atwood communicate a perspective of Chicago deemed harsh, melancholy, and romantic. Their collaboration exceeds the simple blend of score over slide show. Rather, the piece feels a seamless performance, difficult to decide where the rolling photos end and the piano begins.
