Greetings!

I’m at a transitional point in my professional life, and I’m finding many occasions in which I need to explain myself–where I’m coming from, what I’m up to now and the usual who/what/where/when/whys of it all.

  • Firstly, this home page is a blog–every week or so I’ll put up a new piece of original visual art, a poem, and a recording. There’s already one installation: check it out! I’ve been sitting on some of this stuff for years! I hope this platform also inspires me to make new stuff. Sometimes I’ll write in prose, usually about education and music.
  • There is a calendar of events! New events are added every week.
  • You can hear me drone on about my educational/artistic philosophy.
  • You can buy the coolest homemade book! I will sell other merch one day.
  • Etc, etc, etc. It’s a pretty typical website, at least for now.

The paint on this site needs to dry and I need to go practice and teach! Please comment and share, and watch for my next installation, if you’d like.

Rather than make a comprehensive archive, I am going to try a rotating gallery format. Each week (or so) I will feature one original piece of visual art, one poem, and one musical recording. I hope this format will keep visits to this site fresh and will make me want to draw/write/record more often.

WORDS

The Mystery Curve

cloud-illustration-sriviSo we go this way
Eleven miles or ninety
To the Mystery Curve.
We’re close to danger!
But by dark the shine
Will be off the deck.
When did I lose my taste for symmetry?
Why is balance so bitter?
Here is a joke I have rehearsed–
Oh! New worlds pass by my window,
Too fast for me to map.

MUSIC

Here’s a recording of the beginning of Mario Davidovksy’s Duo Capriccioso for Violin and Piano (2003). Dan Sedgwick on piano, I’m on violin. Recorded in September of 2013.
