I collaborated with visual artist Patrick St. Pierre for a year before he moved to the West Coast. He painted a picture while I improvised, with the intention that his brush strokes influenced my choice of notes, phrasing and mood, while my playing influenced his painting. We did this in a number of different settings. This video is from a church service at Edwards Church, UCC, and incorporates a third influence, the reading of a scripture passage by the Rev. Debbie Clark. Thanks to Art Norton for the video.
