the view from nothing
is a multi-media showcase expounding a thought I came upon soon after getting my 1st computer attached to the web. Once I saw photos from Hubble, I tried to wrap my mind around what this could look like from outside of all that exists. I could imagine going into space, shooting out past all that is, beyond all that Hubble revealed. Once out a sufficient way into nothing, I turn around & view all that is, from any number of angles. It is from here “the view from nothing” takes shape.
A large percentage of my art makes more sense if you think of it & see it from this vantage point. Hubble & computer art arrived in my life almost simultaneously. No wonder so many pieces have a bigger than life feel. Immensity in tandem with the minuscule.
One of the musical titles, “theories & blueprints”, is an offshoot of “the view from nothing”. Once you are at “the view from nothing”, what diversity awaits as you consider possible scenarios, layouts & designs that could transpire out of such chaotic order. Hence, “theories & blueprints”. Nothing to be taken too seriously. Just a way to deal with what Hubble did to my brain.
Feel free to check out a few promo tunes as you peruse some art. Or all 3 suites (about 30 minutes each), the 13 music/art vids (about another 30 minutes) & a bunch of computer art are in the SHOP as "the view from nothing" trilogy. The music & art are available as separate items, but all 3 suites & their respective art collections are also combined in a multi-media item. If you choose to listen here, there is a slideshow & collection below "the cedar theater". So after you hit play, scroll down and center the view. FYI, the slideshow has a pause button in the lower right hand corner if you see a piece you would like to linger on. Pics change every 10 seconds.
Breathe. Peace & wellbeing...
all hands on deck
11 tunes, most from mid 2020. A sonic offering, displaying a variance of emotions due to rapidly changing events all over the world. A solid suite of tunes I am glad to have reeled in. "all hands on deck" is joined by computer art & promo vids 1-4 within "the view from nothing 1".
It is a good idea to turn the volume halfway down.
a being with a guitar
The music was created March 1st, 2013. I played a classical guitar in a non-classical way. Using my own tuning, I just played whatever came to me. Improv of the purest essence. Part of the world's longest guitar solo. "a being with a guitar" is joined by computer art & promo vids 5-9 within "the view from nothing 2".
theories & blueprints
A subtitle to "the view from nothing". (see above) "theories & blueprints" is joined by computer art & promo vids 10-13 within "the view from nothing 3".
the cedar theater
Come sit a spell in "the cedar theater", a gallery where the art comes to you. The videos are largely derived from "the view from nothing". Immensity in tandem with the minuscule. Nothing to be taken too seriously.
The 13 vids run about 30 minutes & are woven into "the view from nothing" trilogy, which is in the SHOP. For now just hit play. If you would like, go to full screen. View on the largest screen possible for a more dramatic effect. Depending on your device's settings you may need to re-engage the full screen or unmute the audio as each video begins.
Remember to turn the volume halfway down.
