New Artwork: “Wabi Sabi”

I have recently been introduced to the Japanese art aesthetic, wabi sabi, and I’m in love with the idea!

Some thoughts on the idea include:

  • Celebrating imperfections as part of a beautiful universe that makes you, you
  • “If an object or expression can bring about, within us, a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, then that object could be said to be wabi-sabi.” (Andrew Juniper)
  • Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.” (Richard Powell)

In celebration of this ideal, I’ve created some new merch I hope you enjoy! One listing is created for customizable apparel, and the other for everything else. 🙂

One more thing to look forward to… I’ve decided to take this idea and shape my newest string quartet sketches around it. Look for a new string quartet work to be revealed soon!

New Sheet Music for String Orchestra & New Merch!

Composed for Ryan M. Luévano and the Neue World Orchestra Project, the 2002 string quartet “Greek Dance” has found new life as a driving work for string orchestra!!! I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to revisit this old little gem of a work! 🙂

Enjoy the digital demo below, and check out NWOP’s first concert on March 10 to hear the debut performance!

(Want to check out the original string quartet version? Listen to a recording here, or watch a video here…)


New in the Leviathan Merch Store a lovely necklace pendant has been added — featuring the exclusive album artwork for the early release of “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep”! Check it out and support the upcoming “Legends” (official title still pending) album (*wink, wink*) that will accompany this epic concerto for 6-string electric violin!

Check back often–Zazzle runs sales all the time! 🙂
