this series is about the experience of working in the studio, and creating art. each piece reflects an emotional state that many artists go through when working.
the final piece in this series, ‘despair’, is dedicated to the memory of John Bottomley, whose music influenced me in the early years of my work after college, unbeknownst to either of us. i rediscovered his music in november of 2011, and finally found out whose music had been haunting me all these years, only to realize he had walked off the earth in february. he will be greatly missed, and his music will live on.
