"The title for my second art collection for SceneFour is PATTERNS & CODES. Patterns occur in nature and codes are manmade forms of communication that relay information. Patterns in nature include spirals, waves, symmetries, tessellations and fractals. Manmade codes include written language, mathematical equations and music notation. When I play music, I am involved in using both patterns and codes. Repetitive patterns are often used when playing the drums and my ability to read and write music notation have been key in my ability to perform with other musicians.

When SceneFour and I worked together on my first art collection, The Fabric of Rhythm, I noticed when I played a repetitive sticking pattern, I could create some beautiful images on canvas. I decided to develop that “pattern concept” in my newest collection. During the creative process of performing and filming for PATTERNS & CODES, I focused on playing certain sticking patterns that incorporated symmetrical motions on my kit. I had a sense that the way the lighted drumsticks were moving through space would result in some striking images."
