Transitory Sound and Movement Collective

The Transitory Sound and Movement Collective, based in Houston, Texas, founded by Lynn Lane (artistic director/sound artist) and founding member Jennifer Mabus (choreographer/movement artist) create experiential work based in sound/movement and multimedia arts. For this new work, “Collective Isolation #5”, part of their “Collective Isolation” series, they have brought in Federico de Michelis (bass-baritone/guitar), Ben Roidl-Ward (bassoon), Carson Marshall (violin) and Jade Devault (movement artist) to explore this idea of creating during a time of pandemic and using Edgar Allen Poe’s poem, “Dream Within A Dream” as an inspiration and guiding point for this improvisational work created with artists located in Canada, Illinois and Texas.
