Piano & Fine Arts

August 7, 2008

“All art constantly aspires towards the condition of music.”

–Walter Pater (1873)

I think so, and this is the theme of my blog.

At the piano, I’m a hopeless dilettante — if even that. I have enjoyed some validation as a writer; authored two novels, published in anthologies and reviewed books. Today, I work in graphic design, web design and 3D animation. I’ll blog about how music guides my writing and design work. Musical education (as much as we can get) is more valuable to writers than formal training in writing. I’ll show why. If I have something to say about a book, a concert or a film, I’ll say that too.

Thanks for reading.
