Much can be said of beautiful harmonies, but there is also a place in music for the dischord, the feedback, the reverb, the chunks of rawness strewn about from a creative process that values expression above technical prowess. Even the ugly shorepound is beautiful to the bodysurfers and boogie boarders.

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.
