Spoke to Bruce Herman yesterday. We both realized how Qu4rtets project has significantly affected our later works, some three years later. Almost everything I have done since then flowed out of the intuitive leap I made in serving Bruce's work. He did the same, and it opened some new grounds for him as well. Instead of "self-expression" we focused on dying to that ego to serve the others in the project, and also a dead poet named T.S. Eliot. The result is a greater life of our art than we could have imagined. A great lesson learned...
Great event at Hiroshima City University! Thanks to Prof. Suwa for his lovely hospitality and for the Hiroshima Symphony quintet for their excellent performance of "At the Still Point" by our collaborator Christopher Theofanidis.
QU4RTETS opens today in Hiroshima, Japan -- at Hiroshima City University. I'll be flying there to be part of the events surrounding our exhibition and concert for "Eliot at Ground Zero" on November 11-14. (with Makoto Fujimura, Jeremy Begbie, and Christopher Theofanidis).
Defying fractured, fragmented modern perspectives, the Fujimura Institute encourages artists and thinkers to collaborate, cooperate and inspire their audiences to piece together a whole view of the world. Read More
