Vita Coco (2012) involved recording cross-training athletes' breathing patterns while they scaled the concrete floors of a building that houses an art book store. The athletes' breathing was mixed live with midi-recorded tracks of specific songs, in this way punctuating the hard tone of midi with longing and pre-emptive desire. Portions of this performance, breathing and soundtrack are included within the film's soundtrack. All original music and soundtrack by Patrick Dyer.
