Sounds and Signs (Summer 2010) Amir Milstein
Amir Milstein has convened an ensemble comprising local movement artists and musicians to develop a new approach to interdisciplinary improvisation called "real-time composition."
This approach enables artists to both nurture their creative impulse and employ traditional performance technique. Using this new form of improvisation, the ensemble "composed" works that utilize elements such as form, shape, spatial relationships, extended sound sources, balance, dynamics, themes, and motifs. Under the banner of Sounds and Signs, this ensemble presented two evenings of structured improvised movement and sound in late September at the Mobius Gallery, an artist-run organization that generates and presents experimental art.
