Whether inventing a language, or composing hysteric choreographic and choral methodologies, concert music works, film scores, operas, and devised music theater, or creating hundreds of numerically-conceived collages and drawings, intuitive and experimental music practices lie at the foundation of Opera Povera Director Sean Griffin’s works.

CORPS (in a museum) examines the crossover between traditional, militaristic, ritualistic, athletic, and folk movement forms. Dancers yo-yo between concealing and revealing, dispersing and aligning, collapsing and rectifying, creating an engine that moves through space and evolves over time.

LASE (Los Angeles Saxophone Ensemble) is a new and modular saxophone ensemble in LA. It focuses on non-traditional and experimental repertoire for four and more saxophones. LASE programs range from loud drone and noise music to ultra-quiet reductionism to experimental work in the American tradition and original works by the group members.
The core performer-composer group consists of Ulrich Krieger, Casey Andserson, Casey Butler and Marta Tiesenga.
