The Four Pillars is the realization of a multitude of profound influences on my work and modes of thinking. Originally conceived as a single harmonic chord for musical compositions, the numerical relationships that make up The Four Pillars now guide my practice to new methods of expression as they assert themselves in the physical and conceptual realm beyond their musical beginnings.
Quadrilateral Starfield Symmetry is a series of works for projection and dichroic filters. I trace free-form spirals from relevant star signs, set those into motion and mirror them quadrilaterally. Each aspect of the timing and the number of spirals is related to the tuning of The Four Pillars, so, while the work does not actively react to the music, its movements are intimately related, creating a continuous whole in sound and light.
Doleo Æternus was my first comprehensive body of interrelated works. The compositions that make up the Doleo family share chordal elements that were originally composed for the piece Anger in 2003. My work with the Doleo chords began to expand while working on Aqua Madora, based in the Mador chord from Doleo Æternus.
