Week 31.  This week is the start of a five week project, a project within the project, something I have been thinking about for a while, but finally triggered by the Moondog inspired work on week  29.  All five visual pieces  will be bas-reliefs, starting with one form (above). Next week will have two forms, the week after three, and so on.  

The music is similar in that this week I am using only one note (C), played in different registers all over the double bass. Next week I will add a second note. Week by week I will echo the artwork by adding another element or note.  I am going to use an open or free improvisational idiom for this music.

I am starting off with a similar simple form to the one I used for week 13, and I am going to try to use colours which I would not usually think of using, particularly for a relief sculpture. It is also important to me that I make sure all five images work together. The same goes for the music.

I will end up with the fifth artwork using five elements or forms. The fifth musical piece will feature five notes, how exciting, what fun !!  

Well I'm excited.
