MMUSIC ISOLATION IMPROVISATION COLLECTIVE IRL ONLINE | MPAVILLION

It’s easy to lament the shortcomings of digital communication, but what alternate forms of discourse does it allow?The Isolation Improvisation Collective (IIC) invites you to a live-streamed, multi-disciplinary event comprising musicians, artists, dancers, poets, animators and other creatives with a shared passion for innovation and experimentation. Formed in a direct response to the COVID-19-imposed lockdown, the group has met regularly over the past months to explore the possibility of community and cooperation online, developing new tools, methods and a shared improvisational vocabulary. During this interactive event, you’ll be invited to re-think the limitations and possibilities of online collaboration, playing with the idiosyncrasies of the virtual—such as lag-times and glitch—as creative parameters, rather than barriers to communication. With the performance hinging on a spontaneous dialogue between participants, each performer’s contribution to the piece will allow them to re-connect with other members of the collective. The result will be a totally unique work—something increasingly rare in this age of documentation and digital reproduction—and a re-defining of what ‘live’ performance can mean in a virtual space. This event has been developed as part of the M_Curators, an MPavilion program engaging young makers, doers and programmers. This initiative is made possible by our presenting partner Bloomberg Philanthropies. https://mpavilion.org/program/isolation-improvisation-collective-irl-online/

Vena Amoris

A performative work, Amator portrays the correspondence of gesture, the subconscious and the physical act of playing piano. Grace’s pieces extend pre-composed motifs through improvisation; the piano becomes a conduit for speech. In a series of musical offerings, the nuances of internal and public conversation are presented through an intuitive approach to melody, rhythm, dynamics, points of rest and silence. This collection of works were recorded by sound engineer and producer Jesse Oberin in the intimate setting of Grace's bedroom in Northcote, Melbourne. Performed by Grace's hands Filmed by Woodrow Wilson.
