Fort Worth musician/composer Austin Patton is collaborating with members of the Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth company to create an interactive music/dance work which allows opportunities for community participation before and/or during the performances.  Drawing inspiration from a variety of artistic traditions rooted in the collection and assembly of objects and movements to create artistic works, the collaborators invite guests from near and far to contribute their own found objects or movements from now through the premiere of the work.   Combining elements of modern day technology-based “crowdsourcing” with elements of post-modern aesthetic traditions (e.g. found object, ready-mades, collage, combines, trash art, junk art, art brut), “Some Assembly Required” enables people with adventurous spirits from anywhere around the world to contribute to a community-based art project through social media connections.
