Many instruments have within their design a method of capturing, redirecting, focusing, and amplifying the otherwise ordinary sounds produced by whichever vibrating element they employ. When those vibrations bounce off chambers, refract around curving elements, they grow to a beautiful pitch, much like a wave as it approaches shallow water. Certain underwater topographies produce the most beautiful apparitions of moving water imaginable.

This painting is another reminder that every song has its roots in water.

This series was created live during the Redwood Coast Music Festival inside the Morris Graves Museum of Art. The overall concept of the series was to explore the connections between music and water, through a set of shared geometric structures.
