About DATURA and JAMovement

DATURA is a media performance ensemble dedicated to using a blend of digital and analog instruments and processes in improvisational settings.

John D. Mitchell – computer, synthesizer and woodwinds
Anthony Obr – computer, electronics and saxophone
Joe Willie Smith – sonic sculptures

JAMovement or J.A.M. aims to create versatile environments where the audience and performers can be vulnerable in a shared exploration of an evolving space. Every performance results in the creation and acceptance of individuals by allowing participants to express their desires and determine the final outcomes of the performance.
