      The Secret Soup is a realtime system for improvised audiovisual composition. Referencing analog synthesis techniques, custom digital interfaces control oscillators, loopers, and synesthetic effects processing with 1:1 visual counterpart. The piece exists simultaneously as a “living system,” an immersive installation and a performance.

      For this iteration of the performance, the piece is reimagined as an intermedia ensemble. A graphic score is created allowing for multiple performers in different mediums to improvise in the same space. The score is based on a series of “waveforms” that are organized in modules similar to the way Terry Riley’s “In C”. There will be a brief set of directions instructing the performers on how to move through the modules and listen. Outside of the structure of the score I am not placing limitations on what the performers play, but instead ask that they are willing to discover what these shapes mean together.

      And if you don’t already know….
      Here’s what the LAB series is all about: 

      Each event will be somewhere between a performance, lecture/discussion, or experiment - designed by one artist. 

      The goal is to create an environment in which the artist can pose (perhaps answer) some question they have about their own practice, utilizing the willing audience. It is an opportunity to take risks we might not take in a performance setting, or have a more candid relationship to the audience, or generate new ideas, ways of thinking, drive home a point, or gather feedback, etc. etc. 

      My hope in creating the series is the emergence of a space where the possibility of failure is embraced, even invited, for the sake of stretching ourselves as be-ers, makers and thinkers - the only desired “result” being a mutually beneficial learning experience for both artist and audience, and the movement of ideas.

      Come on out, we need you to do this ^ ^ ^
