Some news now about The Cannery and I played there last night. The ideas were so incredible, some planned and some not, and I even whipped my gurdy with its own strap. “Tell it to the judge.” Where to even begin…

Let’s say your a musician and you’ve joined this program. […]

Rules as Wrong

By |August 10th, 2017|IMRC News|0 Comments

In my new artist life I’m affecting my past. Maybe I’ll explain. Our culture guides me (limits), music schools, too, so limiting, this idea that sounds and noises are too uncivilized. Those need to be made, forced to be civilized, organized, homogenized, classified– controlled. If not, better be a strong […]

This is a simple but lovely project that we just finished. A friend commissioned a nice sign to hang over their rest and relaxation area for his lovely wife.  This used a 60° V-bit and Aspire’s VCarve toolpath generator.  It’s simple and beautiful especially due to the 1″ thick African […]

Sound Reasoning

Reasoning leads to ideas. As I began my degree process here two years ago, I didn’t know if I would do music as performance, record ambient sounds or compose scores. I plan to concentrate now in improvisation as a central theme, but what I described below has caused a few […]

“To use art not as self expression but as self alteration.” John Cage.

In this work, the thrill of working with Steve (a fellow student here at IMRC) was (and is) something that is worth mentioning up front. He’s great, wise, calming, and insightful. Along with the idea of alto-clarinet, trombone, […]

Jim Winters on hurdy gurdy; hear the incomplete song at: 3pm on June 24th at Fort Knox in Maine. To even consider a musical work as “non finito,” such incompleteness would typically be seen only a stone sculpture. Musical composer Jim Winters offers one hour at the beginning of FLOW […]
