Musician Jimi Durso "Twang" and Artist Robyn Bellospirito
In the summer of 2017, I began collaborating with musician Jimi Durso where together, we create improvised art and music. I've painted at live art/music events before and those are fun, but they are basically artists painting to the music rather than a reciprocal experience. The improv events with Jimi take it to a much deeper level, as they have become a form of communication. What I paint is inspired by what Jimi plays, and what he plays is inspired by what I paint. We create new works of art and music simultaneously, inspired in the moment by what each other is doing. He watches me and responds through his music, and I listen and respond through my art. It's a very special dialogue.
Jimi and I also do improvised performances of dance and music. Some of these may be viewed on my Dance & Performance page.
We are a creative team and have performed for audiences at venues throughout Long Island and the NY metropolitan area.
