Invent/Distract is a group score for live performance that uses the 22 lines of the New York City subway system to organize (serialize) associations for sound and movement. Led by Galen Bremer and Zoe Rabinowitz, this evening of improvisation constructs an environment of randomized interaction between the performers using dynamics, mood, locomotion and place that reflect the random experience of public transit. Invent/Distract encourages participants to create new material and unpredictable opportunities, and invites audiences to discover new ways of seeing and hearing, rooted in a shared public system.
This is the second concert in our series exploring musical performance beyond the stage, Holidays from the Future. You can hear our first concert here.
