Sometime last year, my friend Mike Deaton made a suggestion that I create a video of my art work to be projected on the wall behind the musicians performing in the jam space (known as"The Boilerhouse") at our friend Jim Donovan's Summer Rhythm Renewal Retreat.
The video I created ran for about 40 minutes and it brought tears to my eyes to see my work projected so large and to be enjoyed by so many. Since that time, Mike & I have discussed projecting my work on sides of buildings... in large public spaces.... My mind is still churning with the possibilities...
The video above is a shortened version of what I had put together for the retreat last summer. Once again, Jim Donovan has graciously permitted me to use music from his CD "Pulse." (One of my all-time favorites!) Visit Jim on the web at jimdonovandrums.com
PS - This is a link to a short clip from it being projected in the Boilerhouse. I shot the video at the end of the night after having played djembe for two of the funkiest hours ever!
