My good friend, David Marschall, violist with the NC Symphony, suggested in 2009 that I draw JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations. I spent the next several months drawing over fifty compositions that were displayed during five performances with David and his string trio, Quercus. I drew live during two of these performances. Also, I drew while the trio rehearsed many times.
This experience revealed many aspects of my direction - I enjoyed the structure of the music composition; drawing in synch with the music kept me drawing fast and continually; and there was little premeditation or conscious thought while drawing.
