  3. "From Memory" features the paintings of Mark Bryan. Mark's extraordinary portraits of fanciful creatures and people are at the same time familiar and novel. They inhabit a surreal world that is simultaneously welcoming and discomfiting. As I looked at Mark's images, for the purpose of making this collaboration with him, it occurred to me to wonder whether looking at these creatures was something like the experience of looking at people through the blurred lens of diminished memory- seeing our basic animality as much as our roles and personalities. So I wrote a song about Alzheimer's to accompany these pictures- not in anyway to demean or disrespect people who have this and similar, heartbreaking afflictions, but as a way to express sympathy for those who are closer to the conditions of decay that wait for all of us who live into old age.

  4. This video, entitled "Convergence," is a guided look at the painting of the same name by artist Lori Wolf Grillias. There are many paintings which have a primary subject matter that is immediately apparent. For instance, despite the intriguing background, there is no question but that the woman who has come to be known as the Mona Lisa is the primary subject of Leonardo's most famous painting. But there are other kinds of painting as well, and "Convergence" is one such painting. It begs to be read, but not in a linear fashion as one would read a book. It is better read more like one might read a map, in order to discover something of some hitherto unknown country. This video is one such reading. I highly recommend watching this one in HD.
