Ash Dome is a dance piece created with choreographer Simon Birch and 26 dance students at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds.

It is based on the work of the Sculpture David Nash, and was inspired by a major retrospective exhibition of his work at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park

The sound sources used include found sound from the natural environment, gamelan samples, and cello (with cellist Min Song)

The piece can be watched in two parts on the video links below, or listened to on my Bandscamp site following the link below.
