Stripes! (Art for Music)

There’s a wonderful development afoot: my artwork is being shown during live performances. The music is by Loop 2.4.3, with projections created by Tom Burnett. Described like so on their website: “Loop 2.4.3 creates original music steeped in percussion and electronics. Upon release of the debut album in 2007, NPR [National Public Radio] called Loop 2.4.3 an original voice that ‘sounds like part of a well-thought-out tradition. Only the tradition has never existed until now.’ … Loop’s founder, percussionist/composer Thomas Kozumplik, has created a flexible ensemble that rotates players and varies in size, but a powerful sense of exploration and freedom is constant.” From personal experience, I can say their performances create a thrilling soundscape that lifts you into a previously unimagined world of sensation.

Shown above, a scene from the rehearsal, with the Temple University Percussion Ensemble, on November 3, 2015 at Temple Performing Arts Center in Philadelphia. For the upcoming performance at Alma College, Heritage Center for the Performing Arts in Michigan on December 4, I’ve been creating new images around three themes: stripes, botanical matter, and color fields. Here’s a sample of twenty stripes of all kinds.
