Excerpts from Toru Takemitsu's "Rocking Mirror Daybreak" for two violins
Michiko Theurer and Sarah Briggs, violin. Recorded June 2011 in Buckley Recital Hall by Dr. Fred Bashour.
These paintings and excerpts from my recording can be seen and heard in full on the CD/DVD of ARCHITECT by Navona Records. I created the paintings to visualize aspects of Takemitsu's compositional techniques, such as his use of negative space and thematicization of colors and textures. They are intended to form a virtual space for listening to Takemitsu's composition, rather than a series of directly correlated illustrations.
