____________________________________________________________

Multi-Instrumentalist, Technologist, Developer & Theorist, Manjunan Gnanaratnam, works as an Interdisciplinary Artist within all contexts of Modern, Post-Modern, Contemporary and Experimental Dance. With a career spanning 35+ years, he is considered one of the foremost thinkers on the relationship between Sound and Movement.....

WE LIVE WITHIN AN UNSTABLE LANDSCAPE

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.
