This blog is the electronic embouchure for Andrew Wass.
Here he espouses opinions on a variety of topics, tending towards themes of dance and performance. Below is a statement about his interests and processes that was largely generated by an algorithm.
By experimenting with aleatoric processes, Wass finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities. He formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious processes of composition that are the generative source of much of his works. Influenced heavily by his undergraduate studies of Biochemistry at U.C. San Diego, Andrew works by creating a defined, almost crystalline palette in order to generate a myriad of possibilities. The possibilities are reduced and concentrated in the moments of execution and reception. A member of the Lower Left Performance Collective, he graduated from the MA program of Solo/Dance/Authorship at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum für Tanz in Berlin. Currently he is pursuing his PhD in Dance through the low residency program at Texas Woman’s University.
