A gig of doodles with music
These are the amazing responses from the 102 households who attended my online gig during lockdown here in Melbourne on Sept 16 2020. For 70 minutes, I shared my music video clips, COVID stories, sculptures and doodle artwork. I am deeply grateful to The Boite for auspicing this gig. It was a wonderful experience for me, despite battling anxiety, and I am so happy to see that it was uplifting for others as well. I’ve been blown away by the number of people who have since taken up doodling as a result, adults and children. May the pencils keep flowing! Here are two photos of children who saw my show and the doodles they have shared with me in the weeks following my gig. Absolutely delighted and honoured to have a peak at their artwork.
Rather than lose all these beautiful reactions from my audience, I thought I would document them here. I’ve been remiss on making blogs on this site recently, apologies. My focus is now on producing posts for my supporters on PATREON. There are only so many documents one can produce and still have time for art and music and walks to the beach…
‘Healing and transformative. A very physical and emotional immersion… You not only put your doodles, photos, sculptures and music on the table, you also put your personal self on the table as well… and I thank you very much for that.’ Steven
‘WOW, JUST WOW!!! A magnificent multimedia outpouring of uniquely moving and beautiful art, photos, video, music… including one live piece. Who is in Front of Behind was so much fun, I picked up my traverso [Baroque flute] and improvised along with it—most fun I’ve had in ages!! Your “doodle” art is amazing. I loved the video with the “spiky” music and “spiky” drawing gestures, just fantastic [Skittering]. If you were a man, would you call those “doodles”? No! You’d call them MASTERPIECES! And you’d be right! BRAVÍSSIMA!’ Katharine, Lisbon, Portugal.Continue reading
