Stramonium is collaboration between JAMovement and the band, Datura. It is a performance consisting of dance, an analog image processor, two computers, sonic sculptures, and woodwinds. The work is inspired by notions of perception, reality, and truth at the convergence of the digital, analog and organic worlds. In this work, analog and digital instruments, processes, and movement, co-mingle in an integrated system - a system that occasionally lashes out at itsef, but ultimately seeks equilibrium.
