'Jamb'--Top Shake Dance Company

 Some scenes from this season's work by choreographer Jim McGinn and Top Shake dance company.
'Jamb' is based, conceptually and poetically, but far from literally, on Jim's experiences working in a molybdenum mine in Colorado.  I composed the music and mixed it live for each performance.
