Visual score for 3 voices/instruments. Two projection drawings onto a Joshua Tree in the desert.
1. drawing to the left progresses. Thickness of line indicates volume. Color is open to interpretation.
2. drawing to the right regresses. Reversal could be represented through sound generated through inhalation and/or a sense of eating or gobbling up the drawn line.
3. sound bed to ground the composition and conjure a cold winter night in the desert w/incessant wind blowing directly into the face and freezing the hands as I drew--laptop flopping and projector nearly crashing to the ground.
I recently launched what I'm calling the BACKYARD DRAWING SERIES where people are volunteering their home environments for site-specific projection drawings. I am equally intrigued by how the site-specific projection interacts with the textures, surfaces and spatial qualities of the landscape as well as how this three dimensional canvas shapes the two dimensional drawing. In other words, I am not making drawings of landscapes, but rather, I am drawing with the landscape.
This body of work is branching off in different directions including visual scores for experimental music.
