The Four Pillars Appearing from The Equal D...

As a reward for some of the backers of Andy Lee's "Commissioning Music of Considerable Duration" project, through which he commissioned my The Four Pillars Appearing from The Equal D under Resonating Apparitions of the Eternal Process in The Midwinter Starfield I've been tasked with creating score pages as souvenirs to be framed along with pages from Adrian Knight's Obsessions.

My scores aren't typically much to look at - utilitarian solutions for reminding ourselves, as improvisers, what we need to do. So I've dug deep into my old Japanese writing skills and have done a series of four ink drawings that utilize the harmonic numbers related to each of the filter properties of the piano strings.

I think they turned out pretty well.
