I finally am a sybarite: I want all of my senses turned on, tuned up, fed, and watered as often as possible.  The various sections of the piece represent my different senses, lit up and happily responding to the universe into which I have been born. I am so happy I was born a synesthete!!!

Du Hast – Inspired by Rammstein (2014)

Inspiration: Rammstein. “Du Hast.” 1997. Sehnsucht. Motor Music | Length: 3:55 minutes; Musical Genre: German Industrial
Silk, chenille floss, metallic thread 20.5”x32.5”

Inspiration: Rammstein. “Du Hast.” 1997. Sehnsucht. Motor Music  |  Length: 3:55 minutes; Musical Genre: German Industrial

Upon the first listen to Du Hast by Rammstein, I was captivated by the contrasting textures.  My piece “reads” left to right: the zinging sounds start the song, the big curvy semi circles represent the big guitars, and the yelling rough voice is the pink circle.

Winter Solstice (2012)

For me, the year actually begins with the winter solstice, not January the first.  Imagine a line drawn vertically through the center of this piece; on the left side are actions begun the previous year, only some of which carry through to the next year, as represented on the right.  Not everything that is begun will come to fruition.
