Hope all are well. Next week I’m continuing with my series of interactive performances by presenting Scribe Send Sound.

Writers will also be invited to bring laptops and other mobile devices and write. The hope is to provide a space to create. Wi-Fi will be available during concert.

I’ve been asked to create this year’s Bumbershoot Fine Arts poster, which will also be a graphic musical score. “Sustenance” is a combination of photos and music notation, where the raindrops are musical notes and the clouds are phrase markings used in musical notation. A representation of a three-movement composition, it consists of contrasting parts titled nourishment, endurance and strength. The accompanying musical composition will be available as a free download beginning a week prior to the Festival. I’m honored to be part of this 40-year tradition, which has included some amazing artists.

If you can make it to the show next week, it would be great to see you. I’ll have a more complete update soon.

Many thanks,
