These two are extremely different, and extremely similar, though neither would probably want to admit it! Paul says he’s on the wrong planet, Bill “exists on a plane elsewhere and visits occasionally when pressed”… yet somehow they resonate with me so much more than anything of the contemporary “norm”. Analysis undermines.. Bill- “The only thing [...]

On September 7th, “Travelers” opens at the Seattle Art Museum Gallery. Recently they decided to expand the show to include a landscape section, and I was invited to have a presence there. I’m not sure what additional artists, including myself, have been added not yet shown on the website, but I will update this information [...]

4TH- remixed

The short story- Some grungy riff rock I wrote in the 90s. Lifted the guitar tracks off an old cassette and re-contextualized the whole thing… The long story- Enough talk No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- 4TH The same Youtube video with still image above, hosted at Fandalism: Fandalism- 4TH     All posted [...]

Brief and introductory talk and Q&A at Google, Kirkland WA, accompanying a guest exhibit at Google Kirkland, WA, in April and May of 2016.  The video is simply the eleven images in the order shown, then an attempt to bring various images up that may relate to the topics as they come up. The talk [...]

Place to Print

Spoiler alert- brevity seems beyond me. I’ve been thinking of a write-up like this for some time. Coincidentally without intent there seems to be quit a bit of support material surrounding this one image, so this is an indulgence about one piece of work, from place to print. It’s specific and reflective only of me, [...]

Snapshot blabla

I post a lot of snapshots to Facebook, simple pictures of noticed moments. When many of us were very young and had some little plastic camera we’d innocently photograph anything, a sunset, a friend making a goofy face, a flower, mountain… no thought to whether it amounts to anything, just found moments remarkable enough to [...]

Memory Wind

the short story- another casual video/music excerize that got out of hand, not unlike July Rain. Like it, I did not preconcieve it nor can catagorize the result. I enjoyed making it.   No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- Memory Wind The same Youtube video above, hosted at Fandalism: Fandalism- Memory Wind   The long story- [...]

February Afternoon

  The short version- Several minutes of guitar noodling over a simple drum beat, testing a recording plugin. Some slight editing, completed a composition of sorts, finessed drums, added bass and keyboards, and effects. No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- February Afternoon Still Image, adequate audio: Youtube- February Afternoon The same Youtube video, hosted [...]

To my local friends, a little community involvement in something essentially down the street- My accountants and friends of decades take part and support the local community by hosing artists each month to take part. After years of not quite getting it together, I’ll have a dozen or so pieces at their business for the [...]

July Rain

The short version- A piece intended as background, relaxation, or environment that evolved over a three year period, all based on rain. If the sound of rain depresses you please take a pass! Nothing about the music, or the imagery, is every dramatic or demanding of attention. This is not what I would present as [...]
