ARRAY is a live audio/visual ensemble. The connection between the members of the ensemble is created through interaction of content. Each player brings their own medium and style to the ensemble stimulating the creativity of the other members. Compositions are generated through the reaction, re-interpretation, and manipulation of one's ideas with that of another's. As such, the materials brought to the collaboration by individuals are synthesized into a coherent and flowing experience, an image of the collaboration.
