Abstract Reality

No concept is without connections; no wall is too high for ideas to surmount.

Art will be, regardless of time, distance, or cultural perceptivity, the force it embodies.

Sonic Structures

Sounds are shaped by environments, and auditory imagery shapes perceptions of settings.

Every expression has its history, its formative influences, its development over time and its peculiar themes and effects when it comes into being as a singular vision.

Every person perceives in unique ways; this individuality is reflected in the way of the artist.

Sound, Sensation, Direction

Listen beyond the ordinary, hear past the known.

Sounds brought into being may be ordered and controlled according to rhythms, melodies and harmonies, but these are not the sole aspects of the musical and beautiful.

Environs I: Observation

Center awareness in any setting.

Let line, color, shading, curvature, depth and texture dominate perception and be transformed into a living spectrum of sounds.

Presences and Impressions

Colors, shapes, and forms evoke sounds.

Streams of tones and moods, clusters of feelings, and ideas both clear and vague coalesce, move in the direction of musical language, disperse, return and renew in diverse aural textures and images, filling moment and place.

These compositions give a sense of their pursuit.

Narrow focus and expression in the arts signal cultural complacency.

Failure to look beyond the given and the known is a failure of vision and imagination. There is no art without risk, and no future without questions.

To hear what is yet distant is not as difficult as the choice to hazard listening for those sounds that may be beyond the horizon, or in places unexplored.

Obscurity and Volition

Recordings made at various times and places of environments generally considered to be empty or silent reveal much that goes undetected throughout daily activity.

Attention continually focused on all things ordinary steals from consciousness the fabric of reality and being. There is always something profound in motion; the presence of meaning, however fragmentary, can be brought to light, with the will to extend perception and the mind, and to know.
