Art Work & Writing > Video, Photograpy

The visual languages of photography and painting illuminate the mood and tempo of an historical blues composition by a great New Orleans musician. The painted pattern over the lagoon operates as a visual abstraction of the auditory experience of the music. This delicate landscape is as changing and ephemeral as the improvisational notes of the music.
