Statement of Intent by Gilles Jobin:
“I will be working towards movement and abstraction, looking to activate continuous movement sequences without any repetitions or loops, creating individual scores for each dancers. Thanks to GenMove, a context-free grammar software that Cristian Vogel has specifically developed, we are trying to create a common language that will allow us to produce a very composed yet unpredictable dance and music. The American composer Carla Scaletti will also collaborate on the musical score, trying to use data stemming from the ATLAS particle accelerator at CERN in the composition.”
CIE. Gilles Jobin:
