- David Mott - baritone saxophone, qigong
In conjunction with the Very Nervous System exhibition by David Rokeby at the Art Gallery.
The internationally acclaimed musician and composer David Mott has been called the "Chopin of the bari sax,” and in 1995 was named Best Jazz Baritone Saxophonist by Jazz Report Magazine. His music crosses the boundaries of style, form and content, from new jazz to classical, improvised to interpretive, from solo baritone saxophone to orchestral.
David Mott is an 8th Dan Black Belt in Uechi-Ryu karate. His performance will incorporate solo baritone saxophone and qigong movements.
About Very Nervous System
Jesse Stewart writes: "Very Nervous System is an interactive media-based sound sculpture by Governor General’s Award-winning artist David Rokeby. The piece uses video surveillance technology, a sound system, a computer, and image-processing software designed by Rokeby to translate movement into music and/or sound. I was honoured to have been invited to curate an exhibition of the piece for the Carleton University Art Gallery. I have organized several performances to take place as part of the exhibition, performance that will engage and interact with VNS in a variety of ways."
