Lessons in Composing Chaos

The dialogs that produced Lessons in Composing Chaos were questions concerning intentional and unintentional emergences of form. How could kinds of order/disorder found in organic structures inform a movement composition? Examinations into the processes of how systems establish, function, rupture, reassemble, mutate and disintegrate, all became the foundation for the attention of the piece. The collaged experience generated was the product of several ambitions, one of which was attempting to create a cohesive piece out of many moving entities that describe and embody non-linear transformations. I wanted to illustrate a variety of natural processes with emphasize on the morph and decay of material form. I have a strong interest in exception and mutation, what breaks the rule and re-organizes “the possible.” In other words, what redefines the relationships of the actual or pre-existing order, to the potential or possible (what could be but isn’t yet). In those places, places where existing ideas of reality fail and self-organizing forces restructure the limits of systems, I find the most inspiration. I like making messes that question the fundamental ways subjects understand themselves in relation to their environment, whether it be as a performer, spectator or somewhere between.
