zhlub [visualizing a jazz quartett]

analog contact prints, 2012

Created in the darkroom, these melded portraits represent the simultaneous vibrations of their music, making it impossible to see or listen to one musician at a time.

The solo is the exception, when all attention is on one musician. Once the tapestry of sound is gone, the energy of the moment lies in the vulnerability of the soloist. You could say, every mistake is like a snowball in the face, but if well executed, these snowballs will create their own kind of symphony.
