Description

CalArts Dance X LADP
Doors open at 4:15pm

Please join composer David Rosenboom and choreographer Rosanna Gamson for an afternoon of dance improvisation and live music. Together, Gamson and Rosenboom guide you through new territories of sound and movement inspired by their separate investigations of neuroscience and creativity. Dancers and movers of all abilities welcome. Wear clothes you can move in, bring water, and be ready to dance. Alternatively, come to watch and listen!

David Rosenboom (b. 1947) is a composer, performer, interdisciplinary artist, author, and educator known as a pioneer in American experimental music. His work explores ideas about the spontaneous evolution of musical forms, languages for improvisation, new techniques in scoring for ensembles, multi-disciplinary composition and performance, cross-cultural collaborations, performance art and literature, interactive multi-media and new instrument technologies, generative algorithmic systems, art-science research and philosophy, and extended musical interface with the human nervous system. He holds the Richard Seaver Distinguished Chair in Music at California Institute of the Arts, where he has been Dean of The Herb Alpert School of Music since 1990. Recent work highlights include: fifty-year retrospective performances at Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2015); exhibition of brainwave music at Centre Pompidou-Metz, France (2015-2016); exhibition of computer music software innovations at Whitechapel Gallery, London (2015-2016); retrospective of piano music at Tokyo Opera City Recital Hall (2016); premiere of Nothingness is Unstable at ISSUE Project Room, Brooklyn (2017); electronic music featured by inaGRM at Le Centquatre-Paris (2018); and composer-pianist portrait at Center for Experiments at Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires (2018). Following his Whitney retrospective, Rosenboom was lauded in The New York Times as an “avatar of experimental music.” Rosenboom is a Yamaha Artist. www.davidrosenboom.com

Rosanna Gamson

A native New Yorker, Rosanna Gamson studied composition with Hanya Holm, and Bessie Schonberg, and earned a BFA and MFA in Dance from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She performed internationally as a member of Andrew DeGroat & Dancers, and in the dances of Yvonne Rainer, workshop performances of Robert Wilson, and in many others’ dance projects. Since moving to Los Angeles, Gamson has created eleven evening-length dance theater works as founding Artistic Director of Rosanna Gamson/World Wide (RGWW). Gamson's continuing investigation of improvisation and group-authored performance practices has developed into Gamson's game system GO, which she began teaching internationally in 2017, with workshops next offered in Philadelphia in March and Seoul in July. Gamson has served as dramaturge, mentor and consigliere to both young and established choreographers and directors, and actively supports the development of Los Angeles dance through her Terra Nova Choreographic Residency program. Gamson is on faculty teaching composition at CalArts at the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance where she serves as Assistant Dean and Program Director of the MFA in Choreography.
