Parallel States – A collaborative project with my sister

Parallel States

My sister, Loryn Spangler-Jones (visual artist) and I have been collaborating on a new work of art and music. It’s been an exciting process of blurring the lines between visual and aural – where art is created to inspire musical composition and music is composed to inspire a visual image.

Join us for Parallel States – an exhibition showcasing the art that was created combined with a live performance of the music.

Time to Make the DoughnutsListen Here

Here’s a sample of the work we’re creating. This is an example of a solo piano piece I created inspired by Loryn’s art.

Her piece “Time to Make the Doughnuts” (shown on the left) inspired my composition, “The Sweet Life.”

(Sorry, I just couldn’t bring myself to title my piece “Time to Make the Doughnuts”)
