This brief essay acted as program notes to a recital, entitled "Posing Nothing," given April 12, 2013. The recital juxtaposed performances of scored contemporary music with movement-based improvisation. This essay situates the use of physical movement in my musical performance with artists in other disciplines who use movement as part of their practice, ultimately demonstrating the implicit nature of movement in many artistic fields and how it can be treated explicitly.
