I worked together with my grandfather on this piece. The original idea had been to create a graphic score that graphically conveys the experience of mediating. I experimented with different ways to show my experience of meditation in real time. Starting a stop watch for 2 minutes I drew a straight line from the top left hand corner to the bottom right hand corner without ever lifting the pen form the page. I tried to keep the focus on my breath, and every time a thought occurred to interrupt this focus I drew a little loop. Looking back at the sketch I'd created was quite interesting - it didn't really seem to say much, other than that my thoughts would often form in clusters, bouncing off one another before I was able to reconnect to the sensation of my breath. I'm not entirely sure whether I really expected anything really profound to reveal itself out of this experiment, but it was interesting to look back on the progression of time and be able to retrace my own thoughts so clearly! When I showed this to my grandfather, he really like it, and decided to play around with it on this photo manipulation software he uses for many of his own art works. I would be really interested to know if anyone feels they can relate to this image as a representation of meditation or can imagine using it as a graphic score for instrumental or electroacoustic composition?
