Artist Profiles: Go: Organic Orchestra

Go: Organic Orchestra

Go: Organic Orchestra is a 21st century concept of a “future orchestra”. Artistic director Adam Rudolph‘s archetypal method to composing and improvisational conducting incorporates musical forms from across the world.

Using a non-linear score with his distinctive approach to rhythm as the nucleus, Rudolph improvisationally leads the musicians in concert. This creates unplanned orchestrations that serve as both context and inspiration for the musicians’ improvisational dialog.

For over two decades, Rudolph has taught and conducted hundreds of musicians in the Go: Organic Orchestra concept throughout North America and Europe.

Rudolph has performed with Go: Organic Orchestra ensembles in New York, Los Angeles and Austin, Naples, Palermo and Istanbul.
