This blog was created to facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue around the topic of a unified notational methodology of movement, sound, and experience via the formal and conceptual means observed at the intersections of written and verbal language, experimental film/video, various metaphorical and literal architectures, and the concerns of the plastic arts (painting, sculpture, etc.) in general. The dialogue was first conceived by Travis Wyche in relation to his desire to bring together his many avenues of creative activity and the numerous creative individuals working around him into a synergetic headspace of reciprocated exchange and free play. The project is based on memories of conversations with film maker/experimental musician Curtis Tamm and artist/choreographer Cheryl Bentley, poet/musician Alejandro Magana, painter Kara Joslyn, among others.
NOTACHOREOGRAM is open to all that wish to participate they need only to contact Travis Wyche and continues as a dialogue among individuals of divergent and disparate backgrounds within the arts including but not limited to: musicians/composers, dancers/choreographers, painters, sculptors, photographers, film makers, poets, installation and new media artists, architects, fashion designers, record listeners, nature lovers, junk collectors, critical theorists, philosophers, transcendentalists, situationists, masons, shepherds, metaphysicists, physicists, chaos theorists, gardeners, bakers, arithmeticians, estheticians, factory workers, and those individuals concerned with pursuits of the essential being-ness of being.
