Doris Salcedo at the Guggenheim

This was a breathtaking installation and my main reason for trying to get to New York this October

Doris Salcedo at the Guggenheim

It was a profound experience to see this work in person.

I love her attitude and that of her studio partners as they work to create the impossible, again and again…and they do.

The deeply layered materials and content of these works remind me of Ai Wei Wei’s. ┬áThere is the surface, the almost invisible textures and more content than I can begin to describe. It really is poetry in form.

Congratulations to MCA Chicago for curating a phenomenal show.

Music Commission for Nashville’s Artober Festival!

I am thrilled to have received a composition commission from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, the Bonnarroo Works Fund and the Community Foundation of Tennessee.

The call submission dictated creating a new work based on one of our many great public art installations in Nashville, TN. I chose Chris Fennell’s Tool Fire, a sculpture made of shovels, picks and other tools used to clean up after our devastating 2010 flood.

I played the sculpture with mallets and a bow, added bowed cross-tuned upright bass and recorded a rainstorm that came through during my work sessions to create Tool Fire Rain.

Link coming soon!
