“All Things Go” with a nod to the song “Chicago” by Sufjan Stevens. I just finished this as part of my “homework” for my “DJ Culture Class” The other 8 students have to do DJ mixes, but as the only visual art/non music student I do 2-D art inspired by music.

“AMERIQUES” by Edgard Varese

“Ameriques by Edgard Varese”  34″x40″ sewy based on the work of this French/American composer. His piece “Deserts” was the first avant-garde piece of music I ever fell in love with at age 20 and it changed the trajectory of my musical listening life. “Ameriques” is my synesthetic hand sewn response in silk over linen, with metallic and hemp floss and metallic and cotton thread.
