"To The Joyous, Electric All" was composed in collaboration with Miami-based artist Kevin Arrow. Kevin uses familiar pop images in his stop-motion animation that accompanies this composition; that of a vintage Volkswagen bus, an Atari game system icon, a diagram of the brain and nervous system taken from a high school science book. When I view Kevin's work, I am reminded of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. What would these familiar images tell people about our civilization millions of years from now? In the music, I create the sounds of an ancient language on top of an optional electronic backdrop. Throughout the work I want to evoke a sense of the ancient past viewed through the eyes of a civilization from the distant future.
