This is the home of (no)poem, the collaboration between Darwin Grosse and Mark Mosher. The (no)poem effort exists to support our performances and recorded work.
The unique nature of our interaction comes from the instruments that we use. Darwin focuses his attention on a portable modular synthesizer, while Mark’s system is centered around an Elektron Octatrack and a Waldorf Blofeld desktop.This combo is aided by an automated generative visual system guided by, well, nobody.
Our work is completely improvised, but are supported by the use of postcard-sized graphical scores. This gives us the ability to create structured improvisations while remaining open to react to our surroundings and to each others’ work. We do not use laptop computers or keyboards during our performance, forcing us to use alternative controlling devices to produce the work.
