Hesterian Musicism

Hesterian Musicism is the creative process through which Karlton Hester's compositional and performance style merge to give rise to aesthetic environments where other musicians, kinetic and visual artists, and poets can meet to produce new art forms through imaginative effort. Its philosophical basis involves an intrinsic freedom of expression, focused and disciplined spontaneity, and a structural basis that explores the creative components of diverse sources from the whole earth.


This process has drawn a collective of artists who come together to participate in interdisciplinary performances that support the mission of IAA.  Performances have taken place from New York to California, South America, and Asia.  Artists represent traditional expressive disciplines such as music, dance, poetry, and visual art, as well as interactive technology and physics.
