Take Five

I was just going through my drawings, organizing things and realized I had never posted this.  It's part of a series on music, well, part of a subset group that will be on musicians playing. All is well and very…

Entanglements Within

Despite the lack of postings here, I'm in the middle of doing some really wonderful and far more complex works than what I've been posting the past few years.  That said, it's a private world until it's all complete.  It…

One Fish, Two Fish…

I've been busy working on several large scale musical works.  They are nearly 4 feet each and coming along swimmingly :)  Despite the rather quick structural ease of each, the detailing is taking a couple of months. As with most…

Beakered Bliss

One of the beautifully lovely things about my current experimentations is that each piece feels like  a perfectly beakered bit of bliss.  Each work is a small player within a visual philosophic problem I'm attempting to find solutions to. This…

The Excalibur

The Excalibur... the thing I love about it, is you know if you're the one and probably know before hand :)  Creating is very similar.  When you have your own voice there is no need to stumble around looking and…

Inflation

Every now and again I do an abstract self portrait of my state of being.  It's been a way for me to assess where I am in the grief process.  Below this are a couple of other's along the way...…

Music, The Making of…

From top to bottom: Notes fall from the staff into the realm of instrumentation, are converted into sounds while being played before being put toward the listener's perception as a lovely ballet of melodic line.  I have to clean this…

Billiards and Bobs

What I love about this is that I tried something new in my arrangement: I placed a center-weight.  My work is designed on a very intricate balance like musical notes and they are not centrally placed on purpose.  Each line…

A Long Shot

One of the great possibilities that can manifest itself in competition of any kind is the long shot. It doesn't just figure in the event itself, It's the configuration of how one gets themselves to that very moment.  It's the…
