Brushing Improvisation – N°2 is the latest work in an ongoing Brushing Project that utilizes brushes in electronic music improvisation performances. While the previous performances of Brushing Improvisation focused on the nuanced materiality of the brush and brushing gestures into a musical/sonic expression through mediated technology , which is formulated through the constant interaction between myself as an instrument maker and a performer, this particular piece also explores the cultural universality inherent in the brush. Through this, it creates theatricality, gestural performance, and an organic integration between composition and improvisation.
