Here is a composition I finished last night but did not have time to post because we had to rush out the door in order to go to some kind of youth dance social for adults which involved paying to get in, taking off our shoes, and dancing to music that sounded like it was trying to be what you would get if you mixed a bass guitarist with an African drumming circle. Also it involved hula hoops and not drinking. Liv and I snuck out to buy cigarettes and a flask of Jim Beam.
Music albums that went into creating this composition, in reverse chronological order, are “Low” by David Bowie, “Smile” by Brian Wilson, “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts” by Brian Eno and David Byrne (which is where the title came from), and “Dear Science” by TV on the Radio.
This composition was inspired by a doodle I found on the bottom of a scrabble score sheet, the monsters of Melinda Cross, and also by Wassily Kandinsky’s geometric abstracts. Kandinsky does a better job of keeping some white space in the composition. I’m not sure who the author of doodle in question was, but it was probably one of these blokes from the Combat Paper Project who are staying at our house. In this composition I wanted to bring whatever little monsters I saw to the surface while maintaining clean geometric abstract geometries. The composition rewards the viewer for searching with little surprises that are perhaps not apparent at first glance.
