Short Ride in a Used ’98 Honda

Short Ride in a Used ’98 Honda (June 2011)

Originally inspired by Max Weber’s 1915 Cubist painting, New York At Night, Short Ride In A Used ‘98 Honda began as a commission from the Blanton Museum of Art, but quickly developed a life of its own and grew into a three-movement fixed media piece. The composition is loosely modeled after elements of urban life, particularly chaotic, unpredictable, and fast-paced experiences on the road. The original sounds were taken from automobiles, motorcycles, crowd noise, and simple waveforms.
