Introducing (no)poem – A New Collaboration with Artist Darwin Grosse

Nopoem-fb-banner-v2

My good friend Darwin Grosse and I formed a new duo called (no)poem to support our performances and recorded work.

Darwin Grosse is director of education and customer services for Cycling ’74 (Max). He is the  creator and host of the art+music+technology podcast. Darwin also launched a brand new blog called All Things Modular.

The unique nature of our interaction comes from the instruments that we use. Darwin focuses his attention on a portable modular synthesizer, while my system is centered around an Elektron Octatrack and a Waldorf Blofeld desktop. This combo is aided by an automated generative visual system.

Our work is completely improvised, but are supported by the use of postcard-sized graphical scores. This gives us the ability to create structured improvisations while remaining open to react to our surroundings and to each others’ work. We do not use laptop computers or keyboards during our performance, forcing us to use alternative controlling devices to produce the work.
