“Wind Shadows” was a multi-media, contemporary classical performance at Cider Gallery in Lawrence, Kansas, on April 25, 2017.
Composer and performer Brett Keating played an original electro/acoustic euphonium piece along with works by Alvin Lucier, Karleinz Essl, Stijn Govaere, Forrest Pierce, and Gianinto Scelsi. As Keating performed, I spontaneously painted in response to the music and produced a painting for each piece. Using the duration of each piece as the only parameter for each painting, some turned out better than others. The two highlights were the following pieces:
Responsive painting to a performance of Si!,
a composition for tuba and live electronics composed by Karlheinz Essl.
Responsive painting inspired by a live performance of Wind Shadows,
a composition for trombone and closely tuned oscillators composed by Alvin Lucier.
