A few of my song score Art21 episode “Louise Despont: According To The Universe”

I have been a follower of Art21 for the last couple of years.  I just recently found out that they used a few of my songs to score an episode for an artist.  I am truly honored and thrilled!

What is the source of inspiration? Filmed in her Tribeca studio, Louise Despont peruses a vast reference library of images she began collecting in high school and maintains to this day. Drawn to geometry, energy waves, and universal symbols, Despont’s interests reveal a fascination with underlying patterns and cosmological draughtsmen: Rudolf Steiner, Carl Jung, Agnes Martin, Charles Burchfield, Martin Ramirez, Achilles G. Rizzoli, Adolf Wölfli, Hilma af Klint, Theosophy, Buddhist medical charts, Shaker gift drawings, seismographs, echolocation, mandalas, yantras, Tantric drawings, maps, gardens, fasciation in plants, beehives, kilim, ikat, Jantar Mantar, and masks. “What’s so interesting about the creative act is that you can access something completely outside yourself,” says Despont, who makes a distinction between consciously referencing subject matter in her artwork versus communing with a sense of unconscious awareness. “If you offer yourself up as the hands to make the work the relationship you form with what you communicate with has its own voice.” Featuring Despont’s drawings included in the exhibitions Harmonic Tremor (2015) at Nicelle Beauchene and The Six-Sided Force (2014) at Pioneer Works, as well as scenes from her stop-motion animation Experiments in Moving Drawings, Parts I & II (2007).

Louise Despont (b. 1983, New York, New York, USA) lives and works between New York and Bali, Indonesia.

“Areia” is a retrospective guise to a particular face of the artist life. Inês von Bonhorst comes back to the country and city where she born and grow up to give an intimate look to what surrounds her.
“Areia” is a time machine where the artist is trying to find her deepest memories.
She walk the ancient paths again, some of the landscapes are still recognizable, but other places are definitely changed by the unrelenting time passing.

An Appreciation by The Music of Ancient Greece Released On Surrism-Phonoethics

Free Stream and Download Via Free Music Archive player:

“”The music of ancient Greece was almost universally present in society, from marriages and funerals to religious ceremonies, theatre, folk music and the ballad-like reciting of epic poetry. It thus played an integral role in the lives of ancient Greeks. There are significant fragments of actual Greek musical notation as well as many literary references to ancient Greek music, such that some things can be known—or reasonably surmised—about what the music sounded like, the general role of music in society, the economics of music, the importance of a professional caste of musicians, etc” (Wikipedia,  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_ancient_Greece).
The tracks on this compilation are either covers of the remaining fragments of Ancient Greek music, or a reflection of the participating artists on the cultural legacy of Ancient Greece and an attempt to find the music of Ancient Greece in their own compositional approaches.”

“Classic. Clean. American Art Movies” film by Ryan L. Lewis IV (Obscura Films)

One of my long time Musician/Artist friends Ryan L Lewis IV​ from North Carolina made a very cool short film (Obscura Films) using one of my songs. The film is called “Classic. Clean. American Art Movies” The film also has a very short clip of Easton, PA musician Tatsuya Nakatani​. If you have 4 minutes and 29 seconds to watch this film it is well worth it.
