Wind Shadows (2017)


Gesso on canvas
24 x 30 inches

Responsive painting inspired by a live performance of Wind Shadows, a composition for  trombone and closely tuned oscillators composed by Alvin Lucier; performed at Cider Gallery in Lawrence, KS on April 25, 2017 by Brett Keating.

This piece was the first of seven spontaneously-produced paintings as I listened to Brett perform six separate electro-acoustic music compositions for trombone, euphonium and live electronics.
