Virtual Group Hug

I had a wonderful time at Friday's Intermedia Happening, the culminating event for the quarter. The preparation was insane--I was in New Orleans for most of the week before, came back very sick, and had to work Thursday & Friday.

Nonetheless I managed to design & put together a CD which I released at the event.
Somewhere along the line this quarter I went from being a "musician who does some art" to feeling OK with calling myself an artist(e).

Everybody's work was wonderful, and there was a good turnout from start to finish.
It was particularly exciting to see everyone's altered book journals!
Thanks Robbyn Elizabeth JJ Carol Carol Kate Sara Amie Josefa Chris Alison!

Here's "Rhapsody In Pink," a short video that was part of my installation:

My Bro's Blog

My brother Nick Rusko-Berger--who has a BFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art--recently started his own art blog. Many useful tips & interesting works in progress.

Ever the younger brother playing catchup, I will be taking my very first painting class at JFK University this spring!

Isn't He A Doll?

Well, gurls aren't the only ones in class playing with dolls!

Last week I parked in a different spot at work.
As I grabbed my satchel from the trunk, I saw Shrek laying on the ground!

So Do You Be?

With me free, by 1000 amounts, by the ton and the ounce?

From a presentation I gave on musical time in last Tuesday's Intermedia class.
Same sample, backwards & forwards, in seven octaves.

Inspired by Curtis Roads' Microsound...especially page 5
