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 numerous 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 suites, “theories & blueprints”, is an offshoot of that thought. Once you are at “the view from nothing”, what diversity awaits as you consider the 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 & peruse some art. All 3 suites (about 30 minutes each), some vids which can be viewed in "the cedar theater" & a bunch of computer art are in the SHOP as "the view from nothing" trilogy. Or the music & art are available as separate items. For now check out the promo vid. Then scroll to the players, slideshow & collection. FYI, the slideshow has a pause icon 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...

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.
