I chose to create a new painting about ROGUE COLLECTIVE, a DC group of violinists and cellist who have defined a new method of improvisation called Structured Improvisation. They see the art they will play to ahead of time so they can individually consider how they hear the music for the artwork. They discuss for just a couple minutes before preforming then follow each other's lead to create incredible music that describes their feelings about the painting. My tribute painting is titled: "Improv Reimagined."
