statement by the artist:

"an intercontinental collaboration between myself and my dear friend lee chapman, who currently resides in latvia.

i had the privilege of seeing mark rothko's paintings at the portland art museum a couple years ago. i was so affected by the experience that i went home and created some music in response to residual thoughts and feelings. 'untitled, 1969' was born.

strangely enough, latvia opened the mark rothko art center in april 2013. lee, by this time already a good friend of mine, acquired a print of one of rothko's paintings and hung it above his piano.

unbeknownst to me, lee also created a piece of music in response to his experience with one of rothko's paintings, 'light red over black.'

imagine our surprise when we discovered that we both had created "music for rothko" - a wonderful coincidence!; it only seemed right to collaborate and create one additional "response," and to release the three songs as a set."
