“Co-created with
improvisor colleagues 
Antonin Bourgault, Mayu Funaba, and Dave Klassen,
Sense of Lmcml is the outcome of a Sense of Energy (© 2018) workshop
that was realized as an Open Project for Labo Montréal.


In the “Sense of Energy”,
the sense and the bodily experience of
types of physical energies,
are imagined as sound and
translated into physical vibrations of sound.

During our workshop at Labo Montréal,
each of our ensemble members
came up with, brought in an idea of a different type of energy.

Our process was
to translate our bodily sensations of those energies
into physical vibrations of sound.

The Sense of Lmcml Ensemble,
in focus!

During live performance, instead of replaying,
we strongly focus
on “recreating” those energies,
bodily sensations, and physical vibrations....


I’ve designed the electronics
out of our previously recorded sounds;
they are emitted from under the grand piano.

Resonating the sound-board of the piano,
these help set off
the acoustic and psychological environments that we look for.

I imagine those recorded sounds as
a bond between ︎
ourselves in the past (during workshop)
and ourselves in the now (live performance).

We treat the grand-piano — “into” which we perform —
as a reverberator of sound | of frequency |
(and therefore) of time:

a “time well”! ︎
