Crash: Sight of Hand

Sight of Hand, though it appears to be almost dance like, was created by composer Mary Ellen Childs. When movement overlaps with sound, is it dance? Is it music? Or has it become something else entirely? What other forms of art lend themselves to overlapping in this way? Also, how could Childs’ art be used to bring people together?

Create your own body percussion piece. Sight of Hand was created combining clapping games, hambone (rhythmic slapping of hands and the body) and baseball signals. What can you combine?
