Transitory Sound and Movement Collective (TSMC) will return to CAMH with a new interdisciplinary and experiential work by the artistic director/sound artist, Lynn Lane, in collaboration with founding member/choreographer/dancer Jennifer Mabus along with dance and sound artists, who will create a uniquely structured yet spontaneous composition that will conceptually connect to the exhibition Cheryl Donegan: GRLZ + VEILS. As Donegan’s work reflects a subversive approach to abstraction and art history, TSMC will examine the methods of the foremost abstract, postmodern, performative artists of the 20th century through a contemporary cultural lens. Ideas of abstraction and chance will be translated into contemporary language through the artists’ response to each other and their current cultural environment, creating an unspoken conversation of sound and movement with each other, the audience, and the artwork.
About the Transitory Sound and Movement Collective
The Transitory Sound and Movement Collective (TSMC)—founded by artistic director Lynn Lane—brings musicians, sound artists, dance artists, spoken word, and visual artists together to collaboratively create immersive and experiential evenings of sound, movement, and visual art through a guided improvisational process. Each performance is a unique and spontaneous composition that is created by the process of consideration and response of each artist to the overall whole and concept. The created work truly becomes an unspoken conversation through structured improvisation. Officially formed in December of 2016, TSMC has created evenings for venues such as the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Texas; the Rec Room, Houston, Texas; the Rice University Gallery, Houston, Texas; the Texas Dance Improvisation Festival at Texas Christian University-Fort Worth; the Rothko Chapel, Houston, Texas; and the Arts Mission Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas.
