David Wilson: Arrivals

Dear friends,

I had the honor of taking part in the beautiful installation Arrivals by artist David Wilson, one of a few recipient’s to this years SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) annual SECA award.  This event kicked off one of 6 guided journeys in outdoor locations around SF.   The music was written in collaboration with Andy Cabic (Vetiver) and my good friend Tony Cross.  It was performed in a eucalyptus grove in the beautiful Park Presidio, where one of David’s incredible painting’s along with a recorded document of our performance will live for the next two months.  It was a very special experience!  If you happen to live in the Bay Area, please take a moment and visit while it’s up (roughly until mid November).

Follow the above SFMOMA link for more info on the project and to follow David’s progress.

Much Love,

DPG
