    The first set will be Chris playing trio – a CD release party for his “Phineas” recording – and I’ll be joining them for the second set for madness and musical mahem.

    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.
