Matt Sargent visited yesterday and we began working on a project which will be composed of sound (music) and visual and tactile objects (painting). The various aspects are developing together. Matt used contact mics made from doorbell mechanisms, and other equipment to gather and begin to organize studio sounds while I painted.

Hi David--

Thanks. I haven't shown in LA, but I wouldn't mind doing so if an opportunity arose...

By the way thanks too for dropping my image into your post on the 'destruction of the canvas'.

Very nice.
