Borborygmus Clouds and Constellations

Above: Walking Borborygmus, Extracting, 2018. Colour pencil on paper, 59.4cm x 841cm.

These drawings are not musical scores to play, but are related to music in the way I think about improvisation in a wider sense, as connected to nature, intelligence, bodies and evolution.  When drawing these, I hold several characters in my mind that have their own quirks, colours and forms. Their relationships play out and modulate together over time as I draw them, the process an expression of two or more parts allowing and supporting one another to exist.
