Silver Mantis is a 50 minute electro-acoustic presentation, performed with software and sampling, theremin and prepared piano. It is an immersive multi channel composition which allows for an elastic performance. The inspiration behind Silver Mantis was to create a work incorporating live re-composition and improvisation into its structure, one which could expand and contract fluidly with flow and spontaneity from pre-ordained building blocks of sound.
Incorporating musique concrète and electronic sound along with live instrumentation, the composition is dynamic, cinematic and diverse with stylistic left-turns, creating a tension between time and anxiety.
JG performs it with a projection created exclusively for the project by acclaimed Swedish visual artist Sten Backman. Silver Mantis has thus far been performed at Cafe Oto in London and at Roulette in NYC.
