On Thursday March 13th, we had our inaugural performance of the Enneagram of Personality piece we are composing around the world with different groups of musicians from different walks of life. We give the basic outline of the concepts of the different archetypes and work with the performers to compose musical and visual pieces that, as a collaborative effort, the group believes encompasses the idea about each personality type. Obviously, we believe that each time the piece gets performed, it will be different due to the cultural and intellectual differences surrounding each group.

The first one was performed at the Universidade Catolica de Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil. These images are a combination of rehearsal and performance photos. Unfortunately, the entire group was not around at the end of the night to get a full group shot. Sorry to those who were not there when this picture was made.

Brandon and I want to thank every one of the performers, dancers, documenters, helpers, priests, instructors, translators, and audience members that were involved. You all made this a very magical experience. Can't wait to see you again!

The video below is a *very* quick, low quality, video of an interview with one of the performers mixed with some very low quality video from the performance. There is a lot of high quality footage that will be edited into a DVD soon enough.

holy shit! That's so fucking awesome that I got to see our performance for the first time. It's also the first time I hear myself speaking english! (weird) - anyways... we all miss you guys and the feedback from the performance is great. Tons of people were greeting me and asking about the project and how we got to build up such a great piece of music. I explained and asked them to join the group next year when you're back. (we are already making a campaign)
