Birdland by Maynard Ferguson

Maynard Ferguson's Birdland.jpg

“Birdland – Maynard Ferguson” For the first horn player I ever had a crush on. Those high sweet tones set my 13-year-old heart on fire, and at 72 years of age still does!!!!!

Kaliko by Zomby 2008

Silk, cotton and linen with cotton and metallic thread and floss 31″x21.5″

This song is a bubble-dub song, bumpy with colored percussion, and  simple circular and angular patterns.  Feels like the party detritus strewn in my brain the day after a very joyful lively gathering.  Completed June 1, 2017

Noche Oscura – The Languor in the Dark Night of the Soul

Remembering my friends Adam Lee and Jason Mejia

  “There you go, swimming deeper into Mystery.  Here I remain only seeing where you used to be…….Gone from Mystery into Mystery. Gone from daylight into night. Another step deeper into darkness, closer to the light.”  Bruce Cockburn

“The Deformation of Figures”

Sine Tone Drum fabric.jpg

Silk on linen, metallic thread and floss. 26″x34″.

Using my synesthesia, my hearing to seeing and making art, I created this hand sewn surface design based on live electronics and bass drum. “The Deformation of Figures” was composed by Seth Cluett and performed by percussionist Tim Feeney. This “lowercase” music is an extreme form of ambient music, subtle and rich. The electronics/sine tones, are in color, and the percussion is in black for this one hour performance. I make sketches while listening at a live concert, and re listen to recordings until I am happy with my capture of the “bones” of the music.
