About the Sketchbooks

The musical sketches are created through a process of overdubbing, usually with acoustic guitar as the main instrument. I lay down a line, and try to listen to where it might be going, playing along with it until it feels right. Often I'll start with a tone row or a random selection to keep the harmonies interesting. (Sometimes, it turns into something resembling a song or jazz piece.) The drawings and watercolors more or less follow the same process. I spend a while comparing the music to various visual sketches to see which feel right together. In the case of "Ego City", a storyline emerged.
