After helping my daughter Ellie record some of her original songs I had compiled a set of tools for creating music. The BLACK SUN project is an experiment in adapting my traditional methods of making music and painting to the realm of software and electronics.

Starting off with an idea, then a wash that begins to provide form and values. On top of the wash goes various layers of “color” and “rendering” along with new aspects that begin to stand out and take control of the piece. A bit of refinement and balancing parts and, I guess, in the end it’s much like a painting .
