The Transitory Sound and Movement Collective is thrilled to have been commissioned by Arts District Houston to create a very special immersive piece that we will perform twice on the evening of October 1st at the Union HTX Gallery to a limited and intimate audience for each run. No tickets are required but space is very limited for each performance.
The Transitory Sound and Movement Collective will be creating a site-specific experiential work in conjunction and collaboration with Lina Dib's current installation "North to South and Back" at Space HL Gallery in Houston. We will be creating a 20-30 minute piece that takes off from our piece "Thinking About Friends We Never Knew", based on the theme of "Copies, Fakes and Reproduction" that coincides with the current exhibit in The Blanton Museum in Austin which we will be performing there on June 2nd. We all wanted this work to have a life beyond that single performance and to be able to share it with our Houston friends. We were thrilled with the opportunity to perform it here in a new and fresh way in Space HL. This new work will take ideas and some structured from that piece and utilize that within the context of a new conversation with Lina's beautiful and subtle work. This work will reference the previous work but be completely new. Tickets are $10 per person and are only available at the door. Seating will be very limited to 40-50 people max. Doors open at 7 with a very punctual start of 7:30. Arrive Early To Get A Seat. No Late Admissions.

The Transitory Sound and Movement Collective will be performing a site-specific new work at the Blanton Museum in Austin, Texas during the “SoundSpace at the Blanton” series curated by Steve Parker. We will be performing our piece twice during this event. For this piece we will have 2 musicians and three dancers. Artistic Director/Sound Artist Lynn Lane will be performing with percussion and electronics and Carson Marshall will be playing the violin. Choreographer/Dance Artist Jennifer Mabus will be creating a the movement and setting the work on herself along with Tuesday Moon Boswell and Lindsay Courtner.
Transitory Sound and Movement Collective’s “Moving Mountains Through The Clouds” will engage the audience in an immediate experience of the senses as they enter into an inter-disciplinary, immersive world that blurs the boundaries between sound, dance, design, and space. The audience will be surrounded by a living, active and sonic sculpture…a form of physical theatre. The soundscape, choreography, and lighting design will be interactive and engaged, as each artist will respond to each other and the beautiful space of the Asia Society’s own architecture.
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.
