before I began working in 3d online I was a systems analyst for an oil company
my music was in school as a side activity
I learned to play but not the theory of how to compose
so I decided to learn how to compose but also to do it in new ways so that the music I made could be new to me

this exhibit looks different from the sides and back
only the 3d parts are visible
it is vision plus sound plus mind :)
you have to come inside to see the mind

see the moving dots –
this is an experiment
it is visual of the music you have been playing on the right
in my vocabulary the purple is the cadence (energy) and the green is the backbone (structure)
for me vision and sound go together

these piano notes are only a few seconds
the parts of the composition are 7 seconds long each
there is a link to the full composition played in youtube, at the top top top left of that display
here I put 19 seconds of it in three parts

when many people play it comes from different directions and volumes
I have had groups come and play all together
who don’t “do” music but enjoyed it

speaking in music
without words
although… we still add words :)

because of custom keyboard
the colored cubes are programmed musical scales

Emotion Sestet (Field)

From feeling’s silent mystery
emerges force we can’t control
through naive effort of the mind.
An intuition must be grown
from which both viewpoints can be seen
to give them work as balanced whole.

02 Field

Hexagram 2 is named 坤 (kūn), “Field”. Other variations include “the receptive”, “acquiescence”, and “the flow”. Its inner trigram is ☷ (坤 kūn) field = (地) earth, and its outer trigram is identical.


emotions are a mystery because they are nonverbal and affect us from our earliest days and can drive us to unwise actions despite our intelligent awareness so it seems as if head and heart conflict. there have been many attempts and many investigations through history recorded to try to better understand the emotions and to tame them. taming is perhaps a good metaphor because emotions like horses are very strong and can only be directed if at all through trim tab points like a bit in a horse’s mouth or a ring in an ox’s nose. but perhaps progress is being made is possible has been made is still being made and progress is available to each of us to harness or include emotions as a key and energetic part of our composite being. if so what are the best tips known to date well one tip is to learn how to give emotions their head rather than try to confront or block them directly and then giving them their head you use small signals to nudge or veer them in useful directions. this presupposes one knows how to give such nudges also what useful directions are and also the ability to be aware of when emotions are so to speak rearing their heads. we must learn to be verbal with our non-verbal, become conscious of our unconscious, learn to set up an exchange between head and heart where each speaks and is listened by the other. beyond this is the idea of intuition or perhaps what it really is is a third dimension that steps out of the plane of head and heart emotion and intellect, from which new perspective head and art can both be seen, both be allowed and from this direction perhaps is where the insights on sensing and guiding become learnable and usable.
