|During 2000, I originated
several collaborative arts projects with my work: The Music Project
one of these. Two local San Diego composers were invited to view
my relief sculptures and were asked to choose one or more pieces to use
as an inspiration for musical compositions and performances. These
compositions were then performed at the BEC Gallery show opening in May
The composer/musicians who
have participated to date in this project are Scott Taber and Mark Lewman.
Other composers or musical performers are invited to choose from the pieces
shown on this web site to send or perform additional music for the project.
Below is a brief description of the performances to date. Should you wish
to be notified when additional performances take place please email
|Mr. Taber is a singer/songwriter/guitarist
from Albuquerque, New Mexico. For the works he composed for this
project he collaborated with electric cellist [NAME]. His instrumentation
is in the style of world music. He composed pieces based on the following
sculptures: Birth Worship and Buddha
of the North.
|Mark Lewman works with a
group of improvisational musicians who play various tribal and modern drum
and other percussion instruments as well as keyboard. The group's work
for this project involved an improvisational jam session focused on the
sculpture work. During part of the improvisation Scot Taber's Group
was also invited to participate.
