Vancouver Inter-arts collective

It has been a number of years since I have entered into the world of free improv.  This is not a free concert, but a performance where the text and context of what we will perform are not predetermined. The music is created spontaneously. 

“Conversations” will be the interaction of various sounds scapes created by musicians interacting and conversing with other art mediums, the photo shows some of the artwork that has been created during our “rehearsals” as interpretive dance, interpretive painting, and interpretive music make up the whole of this “conversation”.   So we have a spontaneous composition. Some very interesting moments are created in this process.  

So is it “art as language”?  Are we having a real conversation?  Yes, but purely in terms of our various art forms.  

I will be performing on clarinet with electronics processing, and EWI (electronic wind instrument) The project is the brainchild of Brad Muirhead, who has been the artist-in-residence at Moberly Arts Centre this past spring.

The performance is at Moberly Arts Centre – Friday, June 9th at 7 pm.  Information is on the events page.
