A new December. It's colder... yellow leaves and traditional trails.

I sip coffee and plan the great escape.

Oblivion into obscurity, out of flesh, into pulp.

What is one to make of spontaneous creation? Automatic writing? Instant access to play form's delight?

As I've played with the creative process over the past...little more than a decade I suppose, I've come to sense that the autonomy of creation itself - the unfolding of the sound beyond my intentions, the flow of the paint beyond by directing, the incidental, circumsta...

Last night, DunkelpeK (Nava Dunkelman and myself) played a set at Oakland Secret along with Butter Man, The Goobs, and Nick Normal. Good times, but I was a little nervous how the night would unfold when we arrived.

Nava and I showed up early to an empty venue. Even the...

It's been so hot these past couple days. I am writing this naked. When I wake up, I usually play Bach naked. I approach the piano, lay my bare bottom upon the piano bench and begin. This has miraculous effects on your day, such as promoting clairvoyance as well as fost...

Some new piano work set for release in the upcoming months. These pieces, Contemplations on Emptiness and Contemplations of Form, are set to be released as a double album of sorts, each album exploring different dimensions of my playing and, as the titles suggest, diff...

It was friday night. There was a concert at Eli's Mile High Club. Four bands. That's a lot, especially in a bar, where it's generally loud. I knew my ears would be fatigued by the end of the night, my body would be calling for a cozy bed. Yes, I would want to rest my h...

Both Michael's and Blick offer these small bundles of stretched canvas, like six 16"x 20" canvases or ten 12" x 12" canvases for a very friendly cost. For the past few months, it's been with these canvasses that I spend my time, experimenting, creating, destroying, run...

I played the Oakland Freedom Jazz Society's weekly series at Studio Grand last night. Shared the bill with some artists from LA, Ben Levinson and Erika Bell. Was a small turnout. A few familiar faces from the scene. Only one new face. Less than ten in the crowd....

Been spending some late nights in the studio exploring various techniques and working with different viscosities of fluid acrylic. I've been playing with beds of blackness upon which I'll drip, fling, splash, blow, explode and dance other paints upon. The results have...
