My latest recording, quARTet is released today on Origin records
I’ve always enjoyed the relationship between image and sound. In 2015 I began collaborating with some of my favorite artists – many of whom I had personal and/or professional relationships prior to beginning this project – this made it quite personal to me. The process was quite simple. I requested each artist to submit one of their pieces so I could create a newly composed musical work inspired by their art. I printed the work and as I sat with the piece I listened to what manifested in my head. Then I transcribed what I was hearing – on a few occasions I did not feel the first music created represented the image. I saved the piece and went back to the drawing board and listened again. Finally, I fell that I was able to capture the sound in time the image inspired me. Maybe it was already there and I just captured it.
The result is quARTet.
