4/4 Series

4/4 Common time, yet is anything but common. Pace and rhythmic punctuation varies on and off  the quarter note beats.  A linear score navigates through and with a sound space realized through an infrastructure of consistent metronomic delineations by way of shape, color, or both.  The linear score brings into the mix a directive of expressive points:  here, silence, there, pause, now, back, next.   Like syncopation, the line engages in twists and loops that settle into the referent tempo offered by formal reference to changing places of departure, resolution, and recapitulation. 

The color in these changes is keyed to the arpeggiated line's travel, block monochrome beats which offers stability and simultaneously act as springboards for further exploration and improvisation.  The line courses its way through and gives resonance to already stated sequences and themes.  A bend may draw the eye up and over to the other side, or find another sudden turn of events occurring right there in the heart of a saturated color.  The seeming overall simplicity may imply a settled motive, until you find yourself at the corner of green and orange.  By then, you are off again, only to touch down periodically in the larger score and soar back into the tempo's color.  Along the way the viewer may be moved to ultimately tap along to these rhythmic tunes.
