nostoppinganytime is a Los Angeles based duo featuring Eric Lennartson and m a harms. Using drums as resonant bodies, field recordings, and everyday objects, they deliberately create a chaotic atmosphere. Pressing, intense, and observant, their improvisations span a wide range of energies. Much like hanging out around a campfire, they navigate sharing emotions, stories, and life experiences around shared setups through the medium of their improvisations.

Something Nonsensical

“Something Nonsensical” examines the use of AI and its relationship to artists and their art. Using a poem generator, a simple PD Patch, and some software for ciphering the generated text, we created the entire piece with the simple prompt, “Something Nonsensical”. In a time where AI is commonplace, and artists are examining the validity and role of this tool for making art, we explored the idea of creating a predominantly computer-generated piece of work and then reintroducing the human element. The pd patch intermingles these elements: while the poem and sounds are created entirely with a computer, it needs a human voice to activate it, bringing it to life. The power balance between the intelligibility of the reader and the disruptive patch allows the audience to question: who is the performer and who is the filter? Are you able to make something solely through the process of random generators and have a meaningful connection to it? Or is it something nonsensical?
