this site is currently being revamped (AGAIN:)).
lots of fun creativity news to share, but not enough time to have it placed in the way I would like in this space. And so I am making it more of a focus, the revamp, but it is a somewhat slow process, and i’m just going to accept the pace.
i have been doing a ton of research and compiling archival materials for the things I make and I need to spend a bit more time organizing my archive. I’m trying to make it bit more digital this year and I can not begin to tell you how daunting that has become.
my main relationship in the arts world is with my horn. My horn is more of a priority than any of the tools I use to be a maker. I am going be using this period also to re-investigate some of my favorite elements of the alto. It is my root, and I am grateful.
Art Life is not linear. It’s hills, valleys, corners, alleys….I’ve been up and over a few hills, but right now I feel I’m back trudging through some rather precarious valleys, not too far from your nearest alley. ha.
Lastly, if you have not noticed, i am taking a break from most social media. I am one of those people who gets too distracted by it. I need to rethink how I wish to use it as a way to contribute to my various arts communities, generate better curiosity/hopes… Lately, most of it feels like a wasteland of preposterous emotions, and I need a genuine break from the hell ride. I’m sure I’ll be back at some point. hell is not always so bad:).
Thanks again for the support. It is incredibly meaningful. See you sometime later this year. Note that, against my better judgement, I am beginning a new mailing list and if you would like to be a part, please fill out the subscription form below.
my new upcoming record in the coin coin series is done. release details here.
(btw, i heard something about it the other day, being touted as ” 1st release in 4 years”… it’s really not that dramatic y’all…. Honestly I had no intention on waiting 4 years between these releases. I had envisioned this chapter of the work to be out almost 2 years ago, and had planned as such, but a combination of scheduling, travel madness, budgeting, other artistic curiosities/meanderings, and just life took over. Lord knows i’ve been quite busy…. I straddle so many art making hats at this point… anyhow, more soon.)
