AudioThread.Run.B.V.3


What comes naturally is at constant battle with my infinite game. I wrestle with the ultimate goal, the purpose of my art and the relevance of it all...Is this my sole purpose, have I been using my gifts correctly, is this what I long for? I'm largely in a feast or famine stage in which I either have too many ideas and not enough hands to get them done, or I dry up. Nonetheless, I am driven because it is my lifeblood to feel the thrill of a project come to life. To have a good idea is a sensational feeling and to activate it is phenomenal.


Music plays an interesting role in activating ideas, removing creative bocks as I experience synesthesia when I play. One vivid event occurred while playing Beethoven's 5th symphony while quite pregnant with my son. Playing helps me push through the ordinary and allows me to feel super-human among a group of powerful sound-makers in a symphony. It is a physical release and a spiritual thrill that provides a framework in which everything must fit making sense of the loose incoherent bits. The act of playing music not only stimulates me from creative blocks, it soothes me and creates organization in times of chaos from personal loss, defeat, or despair.


"AudioThread" is a series and Run.B.V.3 (Beethoven's 5th symphony, 3rd movement) demonstrates the motion and colors I experience during a particular finger-twisting "run" in this piece. The notes have specific colors and then share combinations as the tonal layers blend. It is an inner vision from another inner vision revealed in an external score of color.
