About my artwork
Sound and its artistic response is at its base core an ancient and unrelenting expression of human reasoning and self discovery. Its history lies in the capture and recreation of natural forms. Neophyte Capsule aims to summarize these theories and capture their essence. At its most basic level, the attempt is to provide a multimedia expression of personal, spiritual, social and psychological reactions to the 'personal' engagement with the world; both the 'seen' and the 'unseen'. With this in mind the process aims to formulate the collective creative actions of experimentation, music technology, synesthesia, poetry, and multimedia. If you close your eyes and imagine sound as color, applied to a canvas then you are close to the aims which are intended as a listening experience. If you open your eyes and imagine thought as image projected, then equally you are close to its intentions of interactive experience.

Hi Glenn! I don't know yet if I will be able to use sound once we will have several videos broadcasting simultaneously at the video structure. In any case, of you have a portrait or self-portrait video I am looking forward to see it:-). Best regards. Al
Hi Glenn! It was nothing... I did write you but then deleted it because I realized I had what I needed! Your still and short bio will be going into a media release kit I'm sending out later today or tomorrow (depending when Adamo finishes with the layout...). I'll have the document posted to the site so you can see it - it will of course be in Spanish however!!! Take care, debbie
