"Organism" is a chain reaction of improvisational gestures encompassing visual art, movement, and sound.
In Organism, projections of animated visual scores will activate the performance space, providing cues for the musicians, conductor-instrumentalists (Martin and Berger), and dancers as they spontaneously create sound and movement based on their aesthetic responses to the visual artwork. The performance reimagines notated music by presenting a central reference point for the artists that encourages subjective interpretations, ultimately producing one-of-a-kind, dynamic musical compositions and dance. Musicians and dancers will translate Martin’s visual scores utilizing their instruments and bodies, and the resulting music and dance will invite further creative reactions from the performers. This framework will create an evolving cycle of spontaneous collaboration catalyzed by Martin’s visual scores.
