Choreographer needs a Composer!

I am choreographing a piece for a very exciting performance project that will take place this summer and I am looking for a composer to collaborate with.

I need a song made for a specific section of my piece using different sounds from NYC (cars, sirens, horns, people talking, the subway, ect...) and using beats and melodies to make an awesome unique track that I can create dance to.
