New CD by the Voice and Alto Saxophone Duet A Small Dream In Red
~ "IN THE LANGUAGE OF DREAMS" ~ A tribute to Ornette Coleman and Wassily Kandinsky.
POWERFUL!! ARTISTIC EXPRESSION:
The expressionist master Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), who painted the masterpiece, Small Dream In Red (kleiner traum in rot) in 1925, believed that the relationship between colors and sounds, between music and painting, is not only theory but actually exists; and all I can add is that when I saw the painting in a museum many years after it was painted, I looked at it and "heard" it … just as its painter wished it to be viewed … visually and aurally … abstract to be sure but closer to tangible palpable physical material reality, than reality itself. The music of A SMALL DREAM IN RED comes from that reality, exploring visual elements from a musical standpoint – repetition, inversion, variation, dynamic intensification and diminution translating visual impressions into aural terms. The music is inspired and imbued with life, consisting of primal earthen tones and elements with slightly representational associations.”
