Inspired by adventures in online dating, Swipe Right is a silly, no-holds barred look at the cringe-worthy realities of Tinder, speed dating, and the relentless search to find Mr. Right. In movement 1, an empty picture frame forms the interface screen you see in perusing the dating app Tinder for potential mates. The second movement embodies the duality of being out on a date or a night out at the clubs, while inwardly feeling bored or disgusted and yearning for escape. The third movement gives the viewer a look at the nightmarish weirdos of speed dating, and the final movement, accompanied by elegant vocalist Lindsey Allen, satirizes the manipulation and molding of a match into your dream life partner. Designed to entertain, this piece also contains a societal comment that will leave you thinking about the perils of dating in the 21st century.
