'learning structures' is a collection of works currently focused on Ryan Lott’s commissions and collaborations with various choreographers and modern dance ensembles. Ethereal, free-flowing music made for movement, Lott's richly textural instrumental compositions blur the line between electro-acoustic instrumentation and innovative electronic experimentation. The compelling dance pieces in this collection span from 2006-2018 and will be introduced as learning structures vol. 1-4 on October 11th, 2019. The ongoing series will continue with further volumes through 2020.
'learning structures, vol. 1: view partially obstructed' is a collection of music from 2009 by composer Ryan Lott, founder of genre-defying band Son Lux. Originally commissioned by Gibney Dance, the original evening-length work of the same name was choreographed by Gina Gibney and included an ensemble of five dancers and live projected visuals by Joshue Ott using his superDraw software. It premiered in October of 2009 in New York City at Baryshnikov Arts Center. Lott’s score incorporates evocative fragments of voice, field recordings, pianos, stringed instruments and organized noise.
