The founder and artistic director of Eryc Taylor Dance not only choreographs for and directs the company he started 11 years ago, he also works with composer to create original music. "I try not to use prerecorded music anymore," says Taylor. "All the music is from the original composers." From classical to electronic, he's collaborated with composer Gerald Busby, who created music for Paul Taylor's Runes (1975), and with London-based electronic DJ Swarm Intelligence on a new piece, Cycles.
