Harrold and Rauh have been creating and working with a process they call the Transposition Method for 4 years. This method takes written works and translates them into movement and music by using the letters of the alphabet as a consistent unit of measurement. To create movement, Harrold uses three charts. One chart is for anatomy ( joints, organs, muscles, etc.). The second chart refers to spatial directions (cardinal, anatomical planes, degrees of rotation) and the third chart incorporates Laban action movements to suggest a how to. Each letter gets an anatomical, spatial, and action assignment that are combined into a movement. To create the music, Charlie builds a melody from the alphabet by using its letters as intervals on a musical scale. The resulting single line melody is them harmonized and set to rhythm. When Harrold and Rauh use this method, they are presenting the same material in two different mediums (music and dance) which are simultaneously connected through intent and detailed execution.
Pieces made using the Transposition Method include Greening, How Would I Rate the Quality, and Let Me Be Still.
Harrold and Rauh use this coded material to construct performance buildings. Instead of a piece having a climax, beginning and end, they think of the pieces as compositional structures made of rooms, hallways and floors.
