October 7, 2017 – Angel City Jazz and Dublab Present Go:Organic Orchestra featuring Bennie Maupin Live – RedCat

Dexter Story performs drum set with Adam Rudolph’s Go:Organic Orchestra live at RedCat Theatre on October 7, 2017. The evening is billed as Moving Pictures + Go:Organic Orchestra.


Go: Organic Orchestra

Go: Organic Orchestra is a 21st century vision of a “future orchestra”.  Artistic director Adam Rudolph’s prototypical approach to composing and improvisational conducting embraces music forms and cosmologies from around the world.

Using a non-linear score with his unique approach to rhythm as the seed material, Rudolph improvisationally conducts the musicians in concert. This creates spontaneous orchestrations which serve as both context and inspiration for the musicians improvisational dialogue.
Over the past two decades Rudolph has taught and conducted hundreds of musicians in the Go: Organic Orchestra concept in throughout North America and Europe.

The multicultural dynamic of Go: Organic Orchestra itself expresses a creative vision of our shared humanity. It is a realization of creative community in a world without boundaries; of culture as the vessel for understanding, empathy and sharing.

Commentary: Performing with Adam Rudolph and Go:Organic Orchestra is life-changing. The experience is transformational. I lose myself. This was my second year of participation but I have attended Adam’s events numerous times. I am honored to have been on stage with such a vital force in modern music along with a host of great musicians. If you’ve never seen this show live, I highly recommend you attend next year.

Playing percussion with Adam Rudolph and Go:Organic Orchestra at The Electric Lodge in Venice on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 8pm.

Go Organic Orchestra

The Electric Lodge is excited to present Go: Organic Orchestra and the new CD, Sonic Mandala, More info can be found here:


The Music

Organic Orchestra utilizes a composed non-linear score as material for creating the musical moment. Composer and Artistic Director Adam Rudolph has constructed a music score using innovative and experimental means with which to conduct the players through music/letter grids, language themes, Indian Ragas and song forms to create the moods, movement and sonic gestures.

The musicians also learn Rudolph’s rhythm concept: “Cyclic Verticalism”, whereby poly rhythms (used in African music) are combined with rhythms cycles (used in Indian music). Utilizing these elements in an spontaneous way, elements will weave what Rudolph calls an “audio syncretic music fabric” that serves as a platform for improvisation and self expression.
